I am trying to backup my Documents and Settings folder with Vista Home Premium. However, I keep getting the error message that "access is denied" How do I get this to work?

Have you tried right-clicking and choosing 'run as administrator'?

What specifically do I right-click to get this to happen?

I tried it and you can't do it like that so sorry for the daft suggestion..:rolleyes:
What are you trying to back up to? A CD/DVD or HDD?

Hmm.... and is the external HDD formatted using the NTFS file system?

Thanks Celestra and just to add, have you tried using a different USB port? If your using ones at the front of the pc try connecting to the ports at the back.

P.S.--- Something funny about Vista Home Premium, Read does not take encryption from external hard drive. You should check about that!!!! :)
