Hey eveyone,

I was fooling around with the permissions on my server and locked up a web folder on my server.  When I try to access the folder by doulble clicking on it, it says:

C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\Ace Doran is not accessible

Access is denied


It also shows that the folder is empty, but I know it is not because the AntiVirus can see files in it when it scans.

Please help me to open it back up.  It has all my software in it.

Try this:

Right click the folder.  Go to properties, security, advanced.  Go to the owner tab.  Select the user than you want to have ownership over the folder.  Check the box to replace on subcontainers and objects.
