Now i'm not able to open the folder and it says access denied .I'm owner of that folder ,but to deny permissions for others i have removed all the user names inclduing my name in the security options of that folder .Now i'm not able to access that eventhough i'm able to login with my username and password and i can see my personalized desktop .I want to open the folder ,I have removed all the options including allow inhertable permissons from parents to propagate to this object .
Please help as i'm not able to open the folder .

Hi,
It is the list of users and groups that are shown on the security tab that specify who can access a file or folder, not who owns it. Owning the folder means that you alone currently have the right to alter permissions on it, but by removing yourself from the list you denied yourself access. Add yourself to the security list and you'll be able to get in.....
