error 1017 - insufficient permissions


Recommended Posts

hi there

I'm running Retrospect 7.5 on a windows Vista laptop, trying to back up to a 1TB Maxtor hard drive.

but the back up doesn't complete, I get the following error message:


+ Executing Immediate Duplicate at 01/02/2008 10:08

Can't use Open File Backup option for Users on Local Disk (C:), error -1017 (insufficient permissions)

To volume Retrospect on Maxtor 1TB RAID (G:)...


I am, however, logged on as the administrator user on my laptop, so am not sure how I can change the permissions further.


Can anyone come up with some ideas here?
