Could not lock Volume Error 5

Post by Phylum » Wed Feb 20, 2013 12:59 pm

I'm not 100% sure why, but I continue to receive access denied errors when trying to restore an img to a USB drive:

Code: Select all

---------------------------
Error!
---------------------------
Could not lock the volume (Code: 5)!Access is denied.


---------------------------
OK   
---------------------------

After clicking ok, if I try the process again I get a different error message:

Code: Select all

---------------------------
Error!
---------------------------
Could not access the USB device (Code: 32)!The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.


---------------------------
OK   
---------------------------
I've tried multiple USB drives of varying sizes (2GB, 4GB, 32GB) - its the same for each. I know I've successfully done this before on this machine (back in December) so I'm not sure why it might not work now. Perhaps antivirus is interfering here?
Any suggestions/advice is appreciated!

It could be the Anti-Virus, but also any other process, that accesses the device. This might also be the explorer window, opened by the autostart function.
