Why do I see 'LastPass could not write to your hard drive' ?

You have likely changed the location of your temporary file directory or have set it as read-only.

Please take the steps below to resolve:

  1. Make sure that you have fully exited all browsers
  2. Make sure no LastPass process is running in Task Manager
  3. Start a Run command: go to Start menu > Programs > Accessories > Run 
  4. In the Run command that appears, please type:   %temp%
  5. This will show you where your temporary folder is located in the top bar. ex: C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\Temp
  6. Note the path and folder here to use in a later step
  7. Open a Command prompt: Run command. Type: cmd
  8. In the command window (black terminal window), type: attrib -r +s drive:\<path>\<foldername> Replacing 'drive:\<path>\<foldername>' with the path that you retrieved from the instructions above (should end with \AppData\Local\Temp)
  9. This should then remove read-only status from your temporary folder and the message should disappear
 
 
Here are the instructions for removing read-only status for a directory from Microsoft's support page (can also be found here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/326549/en-us):
