What is a “permissions not granted error” and what does it mean? Usually this error message is a networking problem. If you are on a public or shared computer, then a permissions not granted error means you are trying to do something that you aren’t allowed to access. This message could mean that you don’t have access to a specific file because you’re not the administrator of the computer.

If you’re the admin of the computer (or the owner of the computer) you can do anything you want! You should not be seeing the permissions not granted error, and there are a few ways you can fix this problem. You can tweak your computer’s permissions settings to ensure you have access to your entire system.
