Re: Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file

Check to see if you have permission to open the file:
  1. Right-click the file or folder, and then click Properties.
  2. Click the Security tab.
  3. Under Group or User names, click your name to see the permissions you have.
  4. Click Edit, and then click to check the check boxes for the permissions that you need, and then click OK.
