Default Denial Of Access

I attempted to move a folder located on my external harddrive to another location on my external. The folder contains video clips and music. Initially it wound up in another unrelated folder also on my external. When I attempted to remove it from this location, the folder, (the one I had been trying to move), disappeared. I did a system restore to 12/31/07 and got the folder back.The problem is that now, I cannot access any of the files contained in this folder. the content is there, all 9.05 Gb of it, but I receive an "access denied message each time I try to open an individual file. According to Microsoft web help, the error code is COOD11D2.
I am the Administrator of this computer, and the files contained in the folder are not currently in use.
Additionally, Where before, the files were identified by their own icons, they are now listed by tiles.
How can I regain access to this folder and it's files???????

Default Re: Denial Of Access

  1. Log on to the computer with an account that has administrative credentials. If you are running Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, you must start the computer in safe mode, and then log on with an account that has Administrative rights to have access to the Security tab.
  2. If you are using Windows XP Professional, you must disable Simple File Sharing.
  3. Right-click the folder/file that you want to take ownership of, and then click Properties.
  4. Click the Security tab, and then click OK on the Security message (if one appears).
  5. Click Advanced, and then click the Owner tab.
  6. In the Name list, click your user name, or click Administrator if you are logged in as Administrator, or click the Administrators group. If you want to take ownership of the contents of that folder, select the Replace owner on subcontainers and objects check box.
  7. Click OK, and then click Yes when you receive the following message:
    You do not have permission to read the contents of directory folderName. Do you want to replace the directory permissions with permissions granting you Full Control?
    All permissions will be replaced if you press Yes.
  8. Click OK, and then reapply the permissions and security settings that you want for the folder and its contents.
