Steps to resolve Dell System Detect error "Access rights required"


Dell System Detect error "Access rights required"


What are security permissions?

Security permissions are attributes on a file or folder that permit or deny reading, writing, modifying or creating data in that file or folder. Security permissions can be set to affect a single user, a group of users, or a class of users (Administrators, for example).

Resolve "Access rights required" errors

If you are downloading files through a Dell online application (such as Dell Hosted Recovery Image), you may recieve an "Access rights required" error. This is normally due to security permissions to write to the drive or directory that files are being saved to.

To correct this error, either remove the write-protection on the directory that files are to be saved to, or select a drive or directory that does not include write protection.
