UAC is turned off, but Windows 8.1 Pro still won't allow a remote program to delete a file
Posted on 2015-01-09
I have two machines, DESK and NOTEBOOK. I want to use DESK as my day to day machine, but all of the files on NOTEBOOK to be in sync so that I can just pick it up and use it when I need to travel. So I found Allway Sync, which looks like it will do exactly what I want; background sync (or just one way until I travel) changes on DESK to NOTEBOOK. However I get an "Access denied" from the sync utility on DESK. UAC is turned off on NOTEBOOK. I don't know how to further enable Allway Sync to do its thing. If I can get it going, then I would really like UAC back on on NOTEBOOK, but if not possible that will be OK.
I selected just one folder to sync that I could mess with to watch behavior.
DESK: Windows 7-64
NOTEBOOK: Windows 8.1 Pro
