I few weeks ago I had a problem with the Public Folder name, I don't know how, but the name has been changed to "Unidad 5 - Funciones" which is the name of another design that someone created.

The thing is, even with the sysadmin account it says "You don't have permissions to edit this folder".

How can I fix this? I would like to change the name back to "Public Folder".

Thanks and sorry for the bad english, native spanish speaker here.

Hola Juan,

I'm not so sure how the public folder name has changed.

It's actually not meant to be changed so not so sure how to reproduce this.

As you can see from the error message you are getting, it shouldn't be possible to change it.

However, you can change it in the DB directly. Access your db and look for the table lams_workspace_folder. You can change it there using basic SQL

If you aren't familiar with SQL, let me know and we should be able to help.
