Default Relink Menu: My folders are locked?!

I'm trying to relink a few audio files, but when using the file browser to navigate to the session folder on the Desktop, it shows Desktop as locked and unable to select. There are little lock icons on my folder icons. Check out the attached screenshot.

Default Re: Relink Menu: My folders are locked?!

I think more questions will come up before any solution. For me:
1-Why are those folders locked?(never seen that here)
2-Why would any audio files be found in any of those locked folders?
Can you locate the files themselves(not from within Pro Tools)? If so, COPY(instead of MOVE) them all the Audio Files folder that sits IN the session folder and try linking from there(which should be on your separate recording drive)
