after downloading security update: secure access failure reading the file's file

Hi,

 

when I opened my usb stick yesterday a pop-up appeared that there was a new software update available.

I downloaded it and now when I click "runSanDiskSecureAccess_Win" and enter my password it says: secure access failure reading the file's file????

I have a SanDisk Ultra USB 3.0 Flas Drive 32 Gb.

Re: after downloading security update: secure access failure reading the file's file

How long have you had the drive?  I ask because SecureAccess hasn't been updated recently to the best of my knowledge.

 

Have you rebooted recently.  Simple answer but it works frequent enough to warrant asking.

 

Did you put the downloaded update on the USB drive before running it?

 

Did you back up your files before running the update?

 

Is there a chance a Windows 10 security app is blocking the new SecureAccess update?

 

Can you try the USB drive in a different pc?

Hi, I am getting the same error message, and I just bought new one. After downloading  from the stick it asked for password and this error came up. Kindly suggest what to do is the new stick is corrupted.

If the drive is new, ie it has none of your files on it, delete all the files and folders on the drive, download the update to the drive and run it.  You don't need to format the drive to remove the few SecureAccess files on it.

Re: after downloading security update: secure access failure reading the file's file

Short version:

I just bought a new SanDisk Ultra Fit usb 3.0 flash drive. I put it into my think pad running win 10. Run the exe file, it did not want to update then it did not want my password. The deleting of all files and putting in a downloaded program SanDiskSecureAccessV3_win.exe made a difference. And now it is working. Thnx.

 

Longer version:  

I run the SanDiskSecureAccessV3.1_win.exe file. It wanted to update. I said OK. It did not manage to update.I tried 3x but it did not work so I cancelled the update and the program opened. It wanted a password. I put in a password that I'd like to use in the future and clicked OK. I got the message: Failure reading filesystems file (err=1).

I thought maybe the update could fix that (since it said it would fix some bugs).And tried updating from the program itself but that did not work either. 

I went to this site to look for a solution to the problem. I found this thread: http://forums.sandisk.com/t5/All-SanDisk-USB-Flash-Drives/SanDisk-Secure-Access-V3-fails-to-start/td... and as it is written there I renamed my file to: SanDiskSecureAccessV3_win.exe. I launched it again and tried to update. This time it worked. The application was restarted.

I again put in a password but again got the message: Failure reading filesystems file (err=1)

 

I read this thread: http://forums.sandisk.com/t5/All-SanDisk-USB-Flash-Drives/after-downloading-security-update-secure-a...

And tried the solution proposed there: If the drive is new, ie it has none of your files on it, delete all the files and folders on the drive, download the update to the drive and run it.  You don't need to format the drive to remove the few SecureAccess files on it.

 

So I did this. Now it seems to be working. Thnx
