    Unable to save any files in the C drive of Windows 8

    I have installed Windows 8 over Windows 7 on my HP laptop. It does not have a touchscreen to I use it in the desktop mode. When I try to save a file in the C drive I get the following message

    You don't have permission to save in this location.

    Contact the administrator to obtain permission.

    Would you like to save in the My Documents folder instead?

    What should I do?

    Hi Friend,

    The error occurs because you have no permission to change the content in C drive.

    >> C Drive is a System drive and The user of System except the Administrator can not change the data.

    >> So log in with Administrator account in the System to save file in the C Drive.

    >> I Hope you will understand.

    All the Best

    Hi dear friend........... it might be the problem of Administrator Privillages

    And to over come this type of issue .....follow the below

    First of all restart the PC...

    then login with the Administrator account......

    and if you are the Administrator.....and still the problem persists..... go this way

    press windows key+X combination from the keyboard......then choose Command prompt ( Admin ) from the pop up

    then click the YES .... button ....

    after that type net user administrator /active:yes and press ENTER key

    and try to save the files again.......and this time Your problem will be resolved
