DavidA Posted September 10, 2008 Report Share Posted September 10, 2008 I installed Vista for the first time last week. In general I was happy with it, but certain torrents gave me "Access Denied" in utorrent.In the FAQ it explains that a common problem is when other programs are in the process of indexing the file. In my case though, after a few hours I found out that it was actually a problem with permissions.I had installed Vista on my C drive, but left my old D drive as it was. It was filled with downloads from utorrent in XP. It turned out that Vista didn't like resuming a download that XP had started. I found that if I run utorrent as Administrator (right-click on utorrent | Run As Administrator) then it could resume the files fine. In the end I worked out that if I simply copied the files to another directory and then deleted the old ones, then Vista considered the new files to be mine and utorrent could update them without any problem.So... if you see "Access Denied" after a fresh Vista install, try running utorrent as administrator. If that works okay then you have a permission problem and copying the files to a new location might solve your problem. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
