When I am logged in as an administrator (or a regular user) and I try to access "Removable Storage" in Computer Management in a Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition SP2 system I get a message reading:
Access is denied
the snapin's display may be inconsistent with the removable storage service. If the problem persists please restart the snap-in.
The problem persists, however I am not sure how to restart the snap in, other then closing the MMC and reopening it. That does not help. I have also tried uninstalling the driver and letting plug and play reinstall it, but that does not help either. I have not found a solution on technet or Google.
Any suggestions for fixing this?
How can access be denied to an administrator? How do I fix an inconsistent snapin display?
I also get an access denied message when I try to open disk management, so their may be a more general problem.
