    The folder won't let me anywhere near it. I just get Access Denied all the time.

    Re: Gremlins in my file system

    Have you taken over ownership and given yourself full rights over it?

    Did you actually try the shortname? Using move C:\path\to\file\thisisin~1 etc? I've not found any file I can't sort out with the short names. As other have mentioned, take ownership of the files and folders and make sure it does the same on sub folders and files. Also make sure you are using cmd not command.com (well you never know :P)

    Re: Gremlins in my file system

    NetworkGeezer and DMcCoy: thanks for advice but please read from beginning of thread. I can't take ownership because I don't get the security tab when I look at the properties of the folder. All I get is 'General', 'Customize' and 'NFS sharing'. And I have tried shortname. Every time I try to perform any action on the folder, whether to access it, rename it or delete it, I just get Access Denied, in Windows or from the command promt.

    If this were a client, I would probably take the HD out and boot it up as slave in another pc. But this is our NAS server which actively holds all of our documents for staff and pupils.

    At least this isn't a big problem at the moment. It's not stopping the pupils doing any work and I don't think they have anything in the folder they are in desperate need of. I'm on holiday next week so might come back to this then.

    What about taking ownership of its parent and checking the "Replace owner on subcontainers" box? Maybe Windows is smart enough to propagate it.

    You will have to take ownership *above* the folder, it is invalid after all

    Re: Gremlins in my file system

    Are you trying this from a remote machine, or does it have an rdp interface?

    Remote Desktop, but I have plugged in a monitor / keyboard / mouse and tried it from the machine. Exactly the same problem.

    Didn't the Linux boot cd method work then?

    Linux boot CD? But this problem involves writing to NTFS.

    Yes, System Rescue CD includes Captive NTFS. Write support is safe using that. More info in the manual:
