    After installing Acronis W/S 9.1 i received the message:

    Administrator has prohibited access to usb/1394 mass storage devices

    I cannot access USB, DVD, CD or my RAID devices. How do I correct this?

    Is this on a networked computer? If so then talk to Mr/Mrs/Miss/Ms Administrator and kindly ask them to stop obstructing your imaging spree!

    If this is a standalone computer and never encounters a network, then I'd assume you are the administrator. Is this the case?

    This is my personal PC, and I am the administrator. I would guess there is some obscure setting to correct this, but even after uninstalling Acronis and going back to a previous system restore point, the problem exists. Is there any way to retrieve a copy of the rergistry from a week ago or so?

    I have the same problem. I described it on a different forum with no responses yet:

    Try this:

    Logoff.

    Press Ctrl+ALT+Del to access and login to your hidden Administrator account.

    Open Registry Editor.

    In Registry Editor, navigate to the following registry key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\USBSTOR

    Locate the following value (DWORD): Start
    and give it a value of 3.

    Log off and login to your user account

    Tarunp: I looked at the registry entry, and it was set to "3".

    Any other thoughts?
