Windows Vista has moved/renamed the location of many well-known folders.
It sounds like you are mistaking the application compatability junctions
that have the same name as "old" locations for real folders.
Application compatability junctions, such as "Documents and Settings" and
"Documents\Music", are NOT folders - they are junctions that only exist to
allow applications to function in certain scenarios.
They are displayed with a ghosted icon and a shortcut symbol, and you can
only see them if you have enabled the showing of hidden files and displaying
of protected operating system files.
You will receive access denied when trying to access them.
You must learn where that location has been moved, and use the new location.
- Documents and Settings is now Users
- The "My" prefix has been removed from all folders
- The Music, Pictures, Videos, etc. folders *ARE NO LONGER* inside the
documents folder - they are directly inside the user profile folder.
