  • Repair partition with fsck? – schrodigerscatcuriosity Jun 18 '19 at 16:25
  • Can you access the folder from a live system? – schrodigerscatcuriosity Jun 18 '19 at 16:45
  • What is the used file-system, is this a NTFS partition? – mook765 Jun 18 '19 at 17:11
  • fsck just return fsck de util-linux 2.31.1 and nothing else. I've tried with a Windows10 system (in dualboot on my computer) and can't access folder. The partition is NTFS (in disk utility, it's said NTFS/exFAT/HPFS) – Fabien Jun 19 '19 at 8:08

You can run the following command (through sudo or more probably from su):

chown -R root:root html_archive && chmod 7## html_archive

Where ## are your preferred permissions for user and other, respectively.
