Mistake. Can't access C: / Users / Downloads File or folder is corrupted. Reading is impossible.
How do I fix this error? I cannot enter the Downloads folder.
Hello, Alexander! There are many reasons for this situation, the most likely option is that you carried out some kind of movement or copying of data or a system update, which led to a change in the owner of the folder, as a result of which you cannot get the coveted access from your account. This is also possible due to viral activity. And also clarify, are you sure that the path “C: / Users / Downloads” you specified is exactly the same, and not in this form “C: / Users / Aleksandr / Downloads”? Try the following to resolve the issue:
- Change the owner of the folder, by right-clicking and opening the “Property – Security” section, open access to your account.
- In the same section, check if your account has permission to read the folder;
- Roll back the system to an earlier state;
- Check your device for viruses;
- Use the “sfc / scannow” scanner.
