I have a mapped network drive (to samba on local network) and when I try to copy a file from it to Program Files or other "secure" folders UAC pops up I confirm, and it still gives me access denied.
The workaround I'm using: I first copy the file to "unsecure" folder like Desktop and then copy it to Program Files. Still asks for UAC, but works.
Is there a way to disable this behaviour?
I'm a developer and I have specific reason to copy to Program Files. Also I don't want to turn off UAC. If you read correctly I want to disable "Access denied" message after I click yes to the UAC prompt.
Consider the circumstances:
- This happens when copying from network mapped drive
- When copying to Program files
- Copying from Desktop to Program Files works (after confirming UAC prompt)
