Hi,

The problem I have is that my Shared Documents has renamed itself to
Documents. Upon further investigation I realized that the desktop.ini file is
missing, but the major problem I have is that I cannot write any files to the
directory as acess is denied, nor am I able to replace the folder.

So what do I do?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks.

James,

Share the folder. See Level 4 & Level 5 permissions here:
