    File restore error, Destination Folder Access Denied,


    I accidentally removed the file from an particular app and now when i try to restore it, it says "Destination Folder Access Denied" can anyone help??? I tried tweaking with permissions and user control but it still doesn't allow me to restore the file. The destination of a file is in Program Files\WindowsApps\

    But what was the name of the program or file? Could be one of us could help but that information is needed. In other words, don't keep it secret.

    After OP names the file, perhaps suggest OP downloads the "Take Ownership" script, that will give folder ownership until next boot.
