Try right click on "empty" folder - select properties - set permissions to FULL control

Thanks for your suggestion but it is already set at 'full control'.

Go to Control Panel - Folder Options - Click View -
Under Hidden files and folders , select Show hidden files, folders, and drives .
Click OK .

Strange one this - I would have thought these suggestions would have worked for you. Will keep searching to see if I can come up with something.
