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).

If you are downloading files through a Dell online application such as Dell operating system recovery media, you may receive 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. The user may not have adequate permission to save the files to that directory or drive.


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.
