Server 2003 subdirectory will not open

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?
