Receive Access Denied When Attempting to Compress Directory

  • OS Name: Windows 10 Pro
  • OS Version: 10.0.17763 Build 17763

Here’s what I’m doing…

  1. Reboot laptop.
  2. Login.
  3. Open folder “try” on desktop.
  4. Right click on folder “esb”.
  5. Select “Compressed (zipped) folder” from the “Send to” sub-menu.

This is what I get…

I own the folder I’m compressing. I own the directory the folder I’m compressing is in. Why am I getting an access denied message?

This operation works fine if I use 7z or Compress-Archive.
