    Hi sarithamakara, This problem usually occurs while the access control settings or sharing the folder with local admin settings but you have clearly mentioned that you have all the permissions. So you would go through this for your reference. I don't want to copy paste the contents so i am giving the reference. Thanks for reading.

    As you mentioned you may have full rights in database but you may not have proper rights in the place where you are backing up the data. Make sure you have the proper read and write access in the drive you are copying the database.

    If you need more information regarding this issue please

    Error seems liek your provided path is wrong or your directory doesn't have rights to read and write.
    You should provide full rights and make sure your path of a file ,it must be correct.
    I hope you got my point.
    If still you have an issue than i'll get abck to you.

    This error seems because of the access issue. Please check the folders/path in which you are trying to create backup, you have access to it.
