I restored a folder from msbackup to a new location after a clean install of
the OS and now I am unable to delete that folder. I keep receiving "Access
is denied". I tried to delete the folder in safe mode and I restored the
computer to the point before the creation of the folder but it still will
not delete.

Thomas,

>> I restored a folder from msbackup.

You meant NTBackup?

>> I keep receiving "Access > is denied".

Take Ownership of the folder, and then try to delete it.
