I locked my self out of a folder while changing permissions.

I am getting the message "the requested security information is either unavailable or can't be displayed" This happened while I was changing folder permissions for a user. Is there anyway to get in without recreating the folder and its contents.?

Hi

I hope you are looking for windows folders as you did not mention it

On the View menu, choose Other Windows,and then choose Source Control Explorer.
In Source Control Explorer, open the shortcut menu for the folder or file from which you want to remove a lock, and then choose Unlock.

Depending on how you backed up, you could restore the folder from backups to get the permissions back.
