    File help

    So I just got done cleaning up some space on my hard drive (by just uninstalling steam and my games on my laptop) and now I'm having a problem with my download folder. I've looked all over google and gotten different advice but I can't seem to get it to work. I can't access the security portion of my properties option. Anytime I try to open it or do anything with it I get this message telling me the folder is unavailable for some reason.

    Can anyone help me solve this issue? Thank you.

    Hello, which folder in particular? Could you specify the path?
