Does anyone know what this error is and how to fix it "Error 0x80070522: A required privilege is not held by the client."? I keep getting this error when I try and save anything to my flash drive and it never did it until a couple of weeks ago and I'm not sure why it started doing it to begin with. I tried changing all of the permissions under the security tab but it didn't do anything either. I am not wanting to format it because I have Windows 8 togo installed on it. Is there anyway of fixing this without having to format? Thanks in advance.

You mentioned this error occurs when you save stuff to your flash drive... does it also happen when you read stuff from it? If not, the obvious solution is to copy the drive's contents to a safe location on your disk, format, and then copy back the content into the drive, where it belongs. If a low-level format does not fix this, try booting into a Linux live-cd and try and reproduce the error - if it doesn't work, there could be something wrong with the flash drive's firmware, otherwise you've messed up permissions on Windows.
In any case, you want to narrow down the problem to better identify its source.

The slowsort algorithm is a perfect illustration of the multiply and surrender paradigm, which is perhaps the single most important paradigm in the development of reluctant algorithms. The basic multiply and surrender strategy consists in replacing the problem at hand by two or more subproblems, each slightly simpler than the original, and continue multiplying subproblems and subsubproblems recursively in this fashion as long as possible. At some point the subproblems will all become so simple that their solution can no longer be postponed, and we will have to surrender. Experience shows that, in most cases, by the time this point is reached the total work will be substantially higher than what could have been wasted by a more direct approach.
