DOS Error 5



DOS Error 5 - Access Denied



Insufficient privilege to Read, Change or Delete a file.


Although most often found on networks, this error can occur on single user systems where the ATTRIB command has been used to mark a file "Read Only".



In DOS, make the ATTRIB Read/Write with the command:


ATTRIB -R <filename>


On Novell networks, try


FLAG -SRW <filename>
