    Folder renames-except it doesn't in Properties


    I had an empty folder I thought I'd use instead of creating a new one so I renamed it. Worked fine-until I tried referring to it in an HTML file. Surprise-it kept the original name in Sharing & Security Properties. And, BTW, it wasn't shared-this was simply an internal reference I was testing.

    BTW, I solved the current problem by creating a new folder & moving the files to it. But I *would* like to know why renaming the folder didn't change the name throughout Properties. I've got an idea that it relates to the Read-Only property which is partially set-and I don't seem to be able to change that. It 'applies' without error but when I close & reopen the Properties window I find that it's back on again. Any ideas? Thanks.

    :)

    • Right-click Command Prompt and select Run as administrator.
    • Enter this command: cd /X: (X represents the drive where the folder is).
    • Copy and paste this command after entering the first one: icacls * /T /Q /C /RESET.

    Hi Howard,

    It is possible that the difficulty renaming your folder is due to access/account limitation or a recent change was made on your computer. For better assistance, please answer the following questions:

    • Are you getting an error message when trying to rename the folder?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you tried?
    • Can you send us a screenshot of the "Public" folders?
