Inaccessible folder

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Caulfield Man, Jan 23, 2010.

  1. Folks

    I attempted to modify the sharing attributes of a folder on a local HDD
    and now I can't access the folder from Explorer.

    Before I format the HDD and start again, any suggestions as to what I
    might have done to make a 600GB folder inaccessible? I have all
    necessary access rights. Naturally this folder isn't backed up, it was
    too big.

    Many thanks

    Did you turn off Simple File Sharing first?
