    I have windows 7x64 and when I try to back up a Quicken file to my other internal hard drive with UAC set to the recommended level, I get a disk not ready, disk can not be accessed error message. However I can go to Windows Explorer and use that drive as normal (copy, delete, move, etc). If I reset the UAC ti none (lowest setting) and reboot, everything goes o.k. What is going on? Is thre a solution?

    Have you checked for Quicken updates? Could be your version is not entirely compatible with Windows 7.

    I use Quicken deluxe 2008 with UAC set to the second from bottom and have never had issues with this. What version of Quicken are you using? Is it fully upgraded?

    I have 2007 Premier and it is fully updated. I have to get 2010 anyway since Quicken is going to stop supporting 2007 in April. Maybe that will solve the problem. It is curious though that 2007 Premeir worked fine for over a month after I switched to Windows 7x64. Thanks.

    You did not say that it worked for a while in your original post. That means something changed on your system.

    See Windows 7 Take Ownership & Grant Permissions to Access Files & Folder. Start by taking ownership of the folder in which you are trying to create the backup.
