I am trying to read a volume via Java. I mean, in Windows terms, something like obtaining a "volume handle" so that I can read the volume from front to back.

The pertinent code looks like this:

Note also that I have added to the java.policy file these lines:

When I run the program I get the following:

Exception in thread "main" java.io.FileNotFoundException: \\.\C: (Access is denied)
at java.io.FileInputStream.open(Native Method)
at java.io.FileInputStream.<init>(Unknown Source)
at java.io.FileInputStream.<init>(Unknown Source)

However, when I run the Windows command shell "as administrator," it works.

Does anyone know how I might get this to work without having to run as administrator?



It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
