I cannot access the files copied into the briefcase RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have brand new Toshiba Note book with OS Windows 7 Starter SP1 , I wanted to create a briefcase folder on it , in order to copy over my Data , we are talking here about 90 GB data , I did the copying in stages , first I copied a folder with size of 3.2 GB , the copying took time , which is fare enough as I was copying the data from the sever through wireless.

    The copying was completed then when I tried to access the files stored inside the briefcase , the briefcase did not open at all. did I miss some kind of configuration I should have done before the copying. 

    In advance thanks , any help will be really appreciated

    Best Regards

  • Hi,

    First, I would like to verify whether this was any error message received when trying to access the folder?

    Meanwhile, please try to check the permission:

    1. Right-click the file or folder, and then click Properties.

    2. Click the Security tab.

    3. Click a user name or group under Group or user names.

    The permissions for the selected user or group are shown in the lower portion of the properties dialog box.

    If you can try to get the full control to test the issue.

    If the issue persists, try to Take Ownership of a File or Folder.

    More reference, What are permissions?

    Hope this helps.
