Running XP pro. When I try to access a particular folder I get the following error message
C:\ path>\ path>\ path>\ is not accessible.
Directory name invalid.

This occurs in two particular instances; all I want to do is delete the path and files.

This also happend if I try to access from the command prompt.

Any one with a solution?

Check your "permissions"... Someone has created some permissions on your system and you haven't got the correct permission of this directory... For example My system has two hard-disks atached to it and they are partitioned for system backups, a spare drive, some music from my cds and some pictures of things like the simpsons, south park, the matrix and so on!!! The system backup drive is only accessable by a Administrator, so a guest, power user, limated account, backup assistants aren't able to access this drive!!!!

try booting up into safemode, and using the administrator account found in there, rather than just a 'normal' administrator account
