    I just finished doing a clean install of Win7 Pro.

    I successfully moved my Desktop, My Music, My Videos to my D-data drive from their
    default location in C:\Users\(username).

    But there's this one folder, Music, in my user profile in C:\Users\(username) that I can't
    even open.

    I've tried all the permission, ownership, auditing etc., tricks under
    Properties >Security tab > Advanced
    that I know of and am able to do, to no avail. Access denied . . . Access denied is what
    I get when I try to change Owner, Permissions, Auditing . . . I've even tried a couple of
    those context menu "Take Ownership" utilities with no success.

    Anyone got any idea what this Music folder is and why I can't get into it?

    Do I need it?

    Can I get rid of it?

    Download & install Take Ownership from our Freeware DB. In Windows Explorer go to C:\Users\{LoginID} and RIGHT-click on Music & choose "Take Ownership". A script will run and then you should have access.
