Hi everybody. I have a 2003 server that is not in a domain, it's currently hosting websites and i noticed that one particular directory is not allowing me access to it. I try and open the directory and i get access denied.

I can browse to the directory and when I click properties it shows no size and only two tabs, general and customize.
I have been trying to push the permissions down from the folder above and it works for the other folders in the directory but not the 1 folder.  

I tried to replace permissions entries on all child objects.
I tried removing inherited permissions from parent to propagate.
I tried to take ownership.
I tried deleting the folder.
I tried attrib –R command in dos.

all these get me access denied.

Sounds like it is corrupt. I would run chkdsk. Can you take ownership of other folders ok?

Try if any kind of lock folder software is installed and make sure that this folder is locked using these kind of softwares.
