HRESULT:0X8007005 Unknown error. Access denied. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit operating system on both my laptop and desktop.  I am trying to sync them.  It was working fine, but now when I run the sync from the desktop to the laptop I get Unknown Error.  Access Denied.  (Exception from HRESULT:0x8007005.)  I have checked all sharing and all permissions.  They all seem to be in order.  I have not been able to resolve my problem with other posts on the forum.  I am also running Norton AntiVirus.

  • I have the exact problem on Win 7. The folders are shared and visible across the network, I can drag the contents from one folder to another but synctoy fails and says directory can not be written to. And this is the directory is on the local machine that it cant write to.  I am synchronizing both folders (same,same). It can write to the remote machine's folders.
