There are two things I think you can try to resolve this problem.

1, log into SQL Server Management Studio and try again.


Navigate to the data folder called IONDATA I think, right-click on that folder and temporarily edit Security to add Everyone and give it full control permission and try again.

Once done, you can delete the everyone account.

Good luck

This error usually comes when sufficient permission is not provided or there may be more. Have a look on this SQL Server error 15105
