Hey all

I am trying to move/rename/delete a folder with contents but I can't do nothing with it.

Tried changing permissions on it, to no avail.

What else can I do?

Thanks,

Heeter

Did you try taking ownership of the folder?

If the folder isn't inheriting permissions it won't cre what permissions you set on the parent folder.

What OS you running?

Folder is sitting on a network drive.

The workstation OS is Vista. The FileServer is Win2003.

I remote desktop the server and tried from there as well, with no success.

How do I take ownership of folder?

Hi Tweakfiend, that helped. On a network folder too.

Thanks,

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
