I have one particular folder that has no 'Sharing and Security' option when right clicking nor a "Sharing" or "Security" tab when viewing properties.  Parent and sibling folders all have the option.  When trying to enter folder, it displays 'Access Denied'.   We have tried to access the security tab on this folder logged in as users who have admin rights in addition to trying 'Administrator' user also.  This problem is only on this one particular folder, all other folders on the server display the sharing and security tabs.

What is the name of the folder?  and where is it located? C: drive?
Is the folder an NFS folder, if so you may need to change permissions there.

It is Server 2003 so it is NTFS, folder is c:\program files\common files\borland shared\bde
bde folder is the folder that has the issue.

You need to take ownership of the folder this is currently stopping you from accessing the file

I rebooted just after posting my last response and when it came back up the folder was gone, which is fine since it is a product we uninstalled a long time back.  I'm sure the server has been rebooted since then so not sure what the folder was sticking around!

Most likely the issue when a folder is pending deletion after an uninstall then you will not have certain options to work with the folder
