Hello all.. I Am using Digital Photo Pro v 126.96.36.199 on my laptop with Vista Business. After downloading photos from my Canon camera and trying to access the file folder, I receive the following message:
C:\Users\Public\Documents\My Pictures is not accessible.

TIA for recommendations and suggestions.
