Torrent Error - Access Is Denied


Recommended Posts

ok so everything i try to download i get this message and it fails. :(

i have tried to download different files using different versions of u torrent but still get this message!

using this service never used to be a problem until i had to re-format my pc, i installed u torrent and ever since, keep getting this error message.

i have no idea what's going on, even trying Force download wont work

any suggestions would be greatly appreciated Thanks!

Your Windows file and/or folder permissions are set for an account that no longer exists, rather than your current Windows account.

  1. While µTorrent is not running, right-click the troublesome folder and choose Properties.
  2. Click the Security tab.
  3. Click the Edit button.
  4. Click the Add button.
  5. Type your Windows account name into the box and click the Check Names button. The text you've entered should be auto-corrected to <PC NAME>\<USER NAME>. When that happens, click the OK button.
  6. Select your newly-added username from the Group or user names list, then check the box next to Full control - Allow.
  7. Click OK.
  8. Click OK.

If you need more help, read What are permissions? and work your way from there.
