locked minidump folder

I've been experienceing crashes with my computer for a while and have been ziping my minidump files and putting them on a fourm but now the minidump file has a lock icon on it. It also wont let me zip the dump files anymore. I tried changing the permissions of the users but when ever i change anything from alow or deny it says access denied.

thanks for your help in advance.

GO into the folder, look for the dump you need, select copy then copy it into the desktop, and click continue

it wasn't originally locked. Why do you think it would have changed?

Nope. I had about 40 before it locked. It might have been after i reformatted and partitioned my hard drive

Have you tried taking ownership of the folder?

Locked Folder?
There is a small lock next to one of my folders. I have searched high and low (and left and right) and I can not find any info. about it. I went through the list of folder options but no mention of it. Does anyone know about it? How did it get there and how can I get rid of it?
