    Locked folder problem.

    I just transferred a few folders from an old CD onto my desktop, and I can't delete or move them. The files inside I can use, but can;t delete or move them either.

    Help please?

    Something along this line, using Terminal

    Code:
    sudo chown -R <your username>:<your group> <device mount path OR Folder>
    boot_info_script | AMD64 Athlon X2 Dual-Core - nVidia Geforce 6150 SE - 4GB DDR3

    cd to the folder in question in the terminal. then type
    Code:
    ls -al
    and press enter. Post the entire output. It may be easier to do
    Code:
    ls -al > ~/foldercontents.txt
    if there are a lot of files and just post foldercontents.txt from your home directory
    There is no place like 127.0.0.1.
