Can not access 1 folder over Homegroup, why?

Hey all,
Ok, I have 7 on both my laptop and tower PC, I share my entire D drive from my tower over the network (homegroup)... i like to keep a mirrored copy of the drive, so I can copy everything from the D drive to the laptop.

Absolutely everything copied EXCEPT one folder.

I have no idea why this folder will not copy... windows just says "you do not have permission to access"

I've done this plenty of times before, never changed the attributes of the folder or anything. I recently formatted both of the systems so everything is nice and clean, no system problems or anything.

I tried moving the folder to another location on the D drive but it's still says I do not have permission... I try just sharing that particular folder, full control, but it sill says no permission.

However, I've copied a few of the sub-folders to another location, and I CAN access them. So it must have something to do just with that folder, but why?

I'm stumped. What can I do?
