I'm running Mountain Lion and I have a folder in ~/sites that has a red icon on the folder and I can't open it because 'access is denied'.
What I've tried:
Get Info > unlock with admin password, change 'everyone' privilege to 'read write' but won't change so tried 'read only' but still 'access denied'
Terminal > sudo chmod -R 0777 ~/sites/lockedfolder
Terminal > sudo chmod -R 0777 ~/sites
Terminal > sudo chmod a+rwx ~/sites/lockedfolder
Terminal > sudo chmod a+rwx ~/sites
Disk utility > repair permissions and steps 1-5 again but no luck
All users now show 'read write' access in get info window but still and no access...
What can I try next?
