Yes I can access the other folders on that drive(E) and on D as well... its all because that folder had file sharing before I formated the C drive. Here is a screen shot of the E: drive and the folder and another of a right click on the folder.

Im sure it all has to do with me setting up my windows media player as my media server so I could stream the photos and music to my PS3. But ever since I formated the C: drive and reinstalled I can not see these files.... the same thing with my music folder

To be honest I kept messing with the security settings - It might of been something like this but I am not 100% what I did.... If someone finds out for sure please update post =

1.Folder properties
2.Security Tab
3.Advanced button
4.Permission Tab - Click change permissions
5.Remove the check for "Include inheritable permissions from the objects parent"
6.Click OK
7.Check "Replace all child object permission with inheritable permissions from object"
8.Click OK
9.Click change permissions button
10.Check check for "Include inheritable permissions from the objects parent"
11. Click OK

See if that worked This fixed my padlock on the main folder as well as the sub-folders.
