Access mounted volumes on Windows from LC?

Another possibility that bit me recently.
A hidden file maybe inaccessible to LC if running on others accounts even
though permissions are such they should have access.
I never figured out why or the details... I just unhid the file and was done
with it since permissions were set correctly.

The first thing to check is permission access to that folder. Have your
program do a sample write to that location and get the results. Sometimes
you need to verify by trying to read the known file you just tried to write.
If the your are not successful, the computer may be locked down by IT. Work
with IT to get the permissions you need. If the user has not installed lock
down software, see that the currently signed in user has permissions to the
location on the drive you want access to.
