Are you sure this is SAS Enterprise Guide? You reference version 7.1, which is a SAS Enterprise Miner version number.
If you want to export a SAS data set from as a sas7bdat file to your local drive, using Enterprise Guide, look at the Tasks->Data->Download SAS Data Set task.

The size of the file you can export is dependent on available disk space.
"Access is denied" can have multiple causes (list not exhaustive):
-- overwriting a file that a user has opened elsewhere.
-- user does not have write permission to drive or directory.
-- sometimes a Microsoft glitch. You may be able to clear it by looking at the directory properties and clearing the read-only check-box.
