We are trying to access our DevWWWRoot directory to get to our Sharepoint physical files. We are able to get the folders that have the files but when trying to open the folders we are getting an error. I have attached the error message.

Also when we search on our sharepoint server we dont see these folders on the physical server. Where would these folders reside and how and where can we do changes to the server to get in to the folders

Sharepoint offers teh webdav protocol to connect to it and browse folders using your windows explorer.   Depending upon your system you could have GPO or registry rules preventing this from happening as a security restriction.
