    File Copy - error code740:the requested operation requires


    My laptop has 4 partitions,C and E,F and G.

    I previousy used a file copy/backup software without any problems at all,until i installed Folder Lock and maybe usb lock.But did not use the software to lock or unlock any files or drives.But has suddenly developed the problem where i need further permissions,as u can see in the capture shot.Says " error code740:the requested operation requires elevation.(adjust token Privelegs)".HOW TO ?

    AND the E,F and G drives are all having the same problem.Unable to copy the files (its only a straight forward copy of files,its not acronis etc who package the files into 1 large file) and i receive the same popup message for each drive...

    AND drive E's icon is now a piece of A4 with the right had top corner turned over.

    HOW to return the permissions back to orig state? Have tried right clicking and changing the permissions there.Still doesnt work.
