Recently I had noticed that I was having trouble uploading files to my skydrive but didn't think anything of it. Today, I was trying to attach a file to my outlook email and received this message: "You don't have permission to open this file. Contact the owner or administrator". I am the administrator of the laptop. It was a pdf that I was trying to upload but I also tried to upload a word document and got the same message. What can I do to access my files? I already tried changing the security. There is no security on any of these files. The security properties show that the administrator, which I am signed in as, has access to do everything with these files. Thank you for all your help with this!

Okay I been playing around with this. It appears I can attach photos and files from any other folder other than the Documents library. I deleted the library and made a new one and now I could attach the files that were already there but could not save into this file, "Did not have permission", even though I am the administrator. I restored the library defaults and now once again, I can't attach files to email. I can open them and work with them but not email. Any ideas? Thank you once again so much for all your help!
