    Suspicious Folder Permissions

    Tried accessing a folder on my PC - got the following message:

    "You don't currently have permission to access this folder".

    Went to the security tab and opened it to change the folder's owner. Saw message "Unable to display current owner".

    In the list of Permission entries there's a SID (Security Identifier) which is unnamed but provides the SID hash (S-1-15-3-1024-etc.etc.etc.).

    Does this indicate suspicious activity? Whether it does or it doesn't, how can I use this token to trace what program created this identifier?

    It's normal it's the Sid for an account that is no longer available deleted account or network account
