Unable to Access 'Send To' directory
I tried to add some shortcuts to 'Send To', but am denied to access the
folder. This also seems to be an issue with some other user folders as well,
i.e. 'Application Data' & Local Settings. Is there some method or workaround
that will allow me access to these folders?

Thanks,
James

Re: Unable to Access 'Send To' directory
Hello,

These locations are not real folders. They are application compatability
junctions that point legacy applications that try to access files inside of
them to the new location. The security restrictions are in place for a good
reason - they prevent applications from crashing/misbehaving when accessing
them - and should not be modified.

The new location for the send to folder is:

C:\Users\%USER%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\ SendTo

Re: Unable to Access 'Send To' directory
Just tried it again and it worked. The original shortcut must have come from
the appcompat junction. At any rate, thanks for your time and expertise.
