    Right-click on the VeraCrypt shortcut and select "Run as administrator."

    Open VeraCrypt, select a drive letter, click on "Select File" to choose your container, and then click "Mount." Enter your password and any keyfiles if used.

    Navigate to the mounted VeraCrypt drive.

    Select "Properties."

    Check if your user account has the necessary permissions.

    Click on "Edit," then select your user account and ensure that "Full control" is checked. Click "Apply" and then "OK."
