Permission to access this folder

Windows Server

Since we migrated our file and print services to Windows Server 2012, we start to get permission issues for admins.

We are using Robocopy tool to copy files and folders from another server but after that we are unable to open the newly copied folder until we click Continue in the “You dont currently have permission to access this folder” popup window.

I was also unable to copy the files and folders except the root folder using Robocopy, because I have received an Access Denied error message.

To fix this here’s what you need to do:

Open local policy editor (gpedit.msc) and navigate to the following folder:

Local Computer Policy | Computer Configuration | Windows Settings | Security Settings | Local Policies | Security Options

In the right pane change the following setting to ENABLED:

User Account Control: Run all administrators in Admin Approval Mode

The default settings for this value is Disabled.

Restart your server.
