Error: Cannot read from the source file System Volume Information\. Access is denied. 0x80070005

    Question

  • SYNC: 02/07/2013 19:50:41:446: *** Error: Cannot read from the source file System Volume Information\. Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED))

    I have no programs open.  All startup programs have been disabled and are not running.

    I have read several other threads, but none of them address my issue.

    What is SyncToy trying to access and why?  The Synctoy error report does not specify, therefore I do not know how to troubleshoot.  Is this serious?
