Access Denied trying to access a folder
Posted on 2008-06-25
I have recently received complaints from a handful of users that they have tried to delete a folder, but after they delete it the folder remains and they can no longer access it or do anything with it. Any time they try to access it afterwards they get the message:
H:/Departments/Employee Relations/Job Descriptions is not accessible.
Access is denied.
The folder in question is on a shared drive on my Windows 2003 server. I have tried accessing the file myself and get the same error. I have tried to 'take ownership' to no avail. I have rebooted the server to no avail, and I have tried 'resynchronizing' the parity on the RAID5 array that holds the data to no avail.
The only thing that has changed recently that I can think of is that I recently upgraded this server from Windows 2003 SP 2 Standard Edition to Enterprise Edition. The server iis a domain controller but is not running R2.
