Vista My Documents etc..permissions

By mike ·
When I try to drill down to anyhing in the "My Documents" folder, I get an access violation. Is this common for Vista? Is there another way to get to documents, pics, music...within the My Documents folder? I am the owner, I have tried sharing -everyone -full permission to no avail (Business version)

Microsoft changed things up with Vista

It's not a permissions problem, with Vista, Microsoft has moved from the "My" moniker and now your documents reside in a folder simply named Documents within your user folder (ex. C:\Users\Mike\Documents) - the same goes for Pictures, Music, Videos, etc... they all have their own folder under the user folder. When you ran the upgrade, it should have moved everything to it's proper (according to Vista) place.
