Windows 7: Problem accessing app data folder in 7057

Problem accessing app data folder in 7057

Hello,

I've just upgraded to 7057, and have tried to access my application data folder.
I get a window pop up, stating that it's not accessible, and that access is denied.

At the bottom of my user folder pane, it also shows that the application data folder is private, and it's only shown as a shortcut.

Any ideas how to get into my application data folder?

Thanks in advance,
Bob.

Hello Bob,

It should be this C:\User\(user name)\AppData folder instead.

The C:\User\(user name)\Application Data folder is just a junction point folder to the AppData folder and cannot be accessed.
