dumb question - stop signs

Post by penhelm » Thu Jan 10, 2008 1:34 pm

I ran the folder compare and got some entries with stop signs on the left. Does that mean error? Why are there so many errors? What should I do about them?

The stop sign indicates that we had an error trying
to read one of files/folders in the pair. For files, this
usually happens when you don't have read-access
to one or both of the files.

If you double-click on the row with the stop sign, it
should give you an error message explaining the

After you've fixed the problem (using Windows Explorer
or a Shell) you can hit File|Reload in the folder window
and see if the situation improves.
