Description

FileAccessErrorView is a diagnostic tool for Windows that displays information about errors occur while programs running on your system try to open/read/write/delete a file. FileAccessErrorView displays the filename that the application tried to open/read/write/delete, the process id/name of the application, the error code (NTSTATUS code), the description of the error code, the number of times that this error occurred, and the timestamp of this error.

System Requirements

This tool works on any version of Windows, starting from Windows Vista and up to Windows 10. Both 32-bit and 64-bit systems are supported. Elevation ('Run As Administrator') is required to use this tool.

Start Using FileAccessErrorView

FileAccessErrorView doesn't require any installation process or additional DLL files. In order to start using it, simply run the executable file - FileAccessErrorView.exe

After you run FileAccessErrorView, it immediately starts to trace the open/read/write/delete operation of files and displays the details when an error is detected.
Be aware: The fact that application get an error while trying to access a file doesn't mean that something is wrong in this application. In fact, in most programs you'll see some file access errors as a normal operation of the software. However, if you have a program that hangs or crashes, this tool may give you an hint about the cause of the problem. For example: If a program hangs because it tries to access a file on a remote disconnected computer, this tool will display the network path that the program is trying to access.

'Skip Common Errors' Option

By default, FileAccessErrorView ignores the following error codes, because they appear frequently in programs that run normally without any problem: 0xc0000034 (The object name is not found) , 0xc0000035 (The object name already exists.), 0xc00000ba (The file that was specified as a target is a directory, and the caller specified that it could be anything but a directory.), 0xc0000011 (The end-of-file marker has been reached. There is no valid data in the file beyond this marker.), 0xc000003a (Path Not Found)

If you don't want to skip these errors, you can turn off the 'Skip Common Errors' option (Under the Options menu).
