Check the path of the file that Windows cannot access and make sure that the location is accessible. (The screen shot for this step is listed below).
Method 3: Make sure that the file has not been moved or deleted
You can also receive this error if the file has been moved or deleted. Browse to the location of the file and make sure the file is in that location.
