    Angry A folder on my external is locked and wont unlock!
    I have a folder on my hard drive, my pictures to be exact, that some how became a locked folder. Several hundred of those photos that are in my recycle bin now will not delete because I guess they are in that folder that is locked? When I go into the preferences for the folder, it shows that the locked check is ticked, however it will not let me uncheck it, change it, etc. I also cant drop anything into that folder, which even has the little lock on the corner of the icon. I have used the hard drive on PC and Mac...any ideas??

    Were you copying folders or moving them before this happened?

    This might help:

    That link was EXTREMELY helpful, actually exactly what I needed, however it does not seem to unlock the folder on my hard drive, because I think since it is a hard drive, not on the computer? Who knows
