You don't currently have permission to access this folder

I am a domain admin. When I drill into some folders I receive the error "you don't currently have permission to access this folder". I am then prompted if I want to continue. Once I continue the folder eventually displays. The knock on effect for this is when I run something like disk tree it only reports a small number of folders. I have to drill into each one at least one time to get correct information. How can I resolve this without messing up permissions

Hello. You could check if the inheritance is enabled or disabled from the root folder.
If you can access the root folder as an admin, but not the subsequent folders, it's probably because inheritance has been disabled and the administrators have been removed from the folder access list.
Also, if you have UAC turned on, you need an explicit user access right (with your Admin name) in the ACL of the folder, but the UAC prompt should do that for you when you click OK.

That is a "bug" with UAC (In my opinion)
UAC always a problem on file servers and hence it is the only type of server I always disable is on to prevent this from happening.

I can access the folders with out issue. The problem is I get prompted on each folder and until I proceed with the prompts then that relevant folder won't show any info on tree size. Ok I will look at UAC and check
