numerous -1017 and -1020 errors during backup


Recommended Posts

Using Retro Express 7.5.387 after formatting my destination drive (WD external) from FAT32 to NTFS, I now am getting 53 errors, all in Docs and Settings ...


File "C:\Documents and Settings\<my_name>\ntuser.dat": can't read, error -1020 (sharing violation)


File "C:\Documents and Settings\<my_name>\AppData\Local\Application Data\": can't read security information, error -1017 (insufficient permissions)



any idea how to corect this?

This might help:


That's for posting this. I just noticed I was having this problem also. Oddly, looking back through logs, things seemed to be fine until October's MS Patch Tuesday. I only backup about once a week (that's all that I need to do), and just noticed the error.


For me, I'm only getting the 1017 error. I've backed up and restored from one of thes backups and nothing is missing, probably because I backup with my own setup of a minimal system state, thus preventing any 1020 errors (at least for now).


I'm guessing finding this problem and fixing it is not going to be easy...
