When I try and run sysinternals volume ID I get access is denied. Im running from comand prompt:
volumeid <c:> xxxxxxxx(Im typing in the ID)


I'm running windows server 2000 on a VM. I have restarted VM and still get access is denied.

Any Ideas?

no...system volume information is denied access on all OS's. it is a protected operating system folder
only "system" has access to this
