Cannot access a directory or file
I have a 32 bit VISTA which does not allow access to a directory/file.
Whenever I try to access the directory it says "Access denied"' The
directory is MY PICTURES. What am i TO DO? It is not file dependent since
several types are involved incl jpg & mov.

Hi Buencs,

It sounds like you may have ran into the files called "Junction Points"
or "Reparse Points". These files cannot be modified or accessed by the
user by default. These are not really folders or files, but just relay
points to the actual file. They include all the "My ...." folders. You
can read more about these here:

'NTFS reparse point - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia'
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NTFS_reparse_point)

For "My Pictures", you will need to look at "C:\Users\(your
username)\Pictures" for the actual folder.

Shawn
