Windows 7: Backup directory and "You do not have permission"

Backup directory and "You do not have permission"

After I make a full system backup in Win 7 I move to the WindowsImageBackup directory. I try to move down the chain to the directory named after my computer. But when I try to move down the chain I get an "You do not have permission" message. I am an administrator and I am able to get around the message but I'm just wondering if there is something I can do to not make the message pop up each time

Thank you.

No just leave it alone. Seriously...But you have to understand, you are not the Administrator until you elevate by clicking OK in a UAC prompt.
