    Hi Everyone,
    I change the name of one folder, from this moment I can't open the folder. I reciver the announcement with the path and that "the folder is not accessible. Access is denided."
    If i clik right click > properties, I see 0 bytes inside, but I know that there are a lot of files inside.
    In the security tab there is " You must have read permission to view the properties. Click Advanced to continue" but when I click Advanced, there is no posibility to change enything....!

  2. I change the folder name. Now I can't open it.

    Hi

    Thanks for the quick answer ( I had problems getting into my acccount...)

    Now to the answers:

    1- When I try to open the folder ( only this specific folder ) I recive this error message:

    I change the folder name and now I can't open it [​IMG]

    2-I have this problem only with this folder after I chanche the folder's name.

    3- I did not make any change prior the problem, only change the name of the folder and then start the issue.

    Abouth Method 1:

    I'm not allowed to change the permission !

    When I click properties and security tab, I see this:

    I change the folder name and now I can't open it [​IMG]

    Then I click Advanced, I see:

    I change the folder name and now I can't open it [​IMG]

    If I click "Change", this is what I see:

    I change the folder name and now I can't open it [​IMG]

    and:

    I change the folder name and now I can't open it [​IMG]

    But I can't change the administrator permission in any place !!

    I change the folder name and now I can't open it [​IMG]

    Abouth Method 2:

    I try taking ownership of the folder and nothing....

    Help please...

    Thank You
