I was in the process of copying files (unrelated, i.e. no media files whatsoever, just simple drag and drop of pdf and word files) from a CD to my hard drive and when I went back to My ********s Library, the My Pictures, Videos, and Music folders had been duplicated.
One set of each has what looks like a shortcut symbol and the other set has a golden colored padlock. I cannot get into either set - access denied.
I have no idea what happened and despite poking around both the properties and the share menu, I have no idea how to 1) unlock/stop getting "access denied" on all six of the folders and 2) how/which one to get rid of.
I would really, really appreciate any feedback on this problem, which strangely just seemed to occur. I do not want to lose the *******s of these files -- although they are all completely backed up - I am just more perplexed and annoyed.
