    Hi,

    I've got a folder on an airport disk that I locked a while ago (Finder > Get Info > checked off lock box)

    Now I can not unlock the folder, which prevents me from renaming the folder. If I "Get Info" on the folder, the lock box is grayed out. I followed the following steps from the Apple site:

    However, did this not work and the folder is still locked. Does anyone have any other ideas how I can get the folder unlocked?

    Thanks

    Are you the Admin of the account, or have admin rights?

    That would explain why the box would be grayed out.

    Yes I am the only user on my MBP and the admin as well.

    Can you drag and drop to an external storage device?
