I discovered recently that my "Shared Documents" folder has somehow been renamed "Documents", and has become inaccessible. I have tried following a past "Shared Documents" shortcut but it displays the same error message as when I attempt to open the folder the usul way. The message displayed in the window reads:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents is not accessible.
Access is denied.
I have tried to rename the folder to no avail. Also tried to drag & drop the folder into a new "Shared Documents" folder that I created, but that was not allowed either.
I am as positive as I can be that I did not change the name of the original "Shared Documents" folder to "Documents", as I have no reason to do so.
Has anyone else run across this situation? Can anyone advise me how to resolve the problem?
I considered going back to a restore point, but I've been told if I do that I will lose any programs and work that I've done since that point. I thought about backing up my whole computer but I don't have enough hard drive space to do that, so....
I'm really at a loss regarding to how to correct this. Unfortunately, my "Geek Quotient" is embarassingly low and I've exhausted the little knowledge I possess. I am a quick learner & a reasonably apt pupil, but I've not run into this problem before.
I will appreciate any and all help anyone can provide... thanx in advance!
