No permission to see the files after using Migration Assistant in Snow Leopard

I have installed Snow Leopard in a separate partition in my machine. After verifying the installation was good, I went ahead to use Migration Assistant to restore my profiles and applications from the original 10.5.6 partition. It took me like 50 minutes and I was able to get back to my desktop after a reboot.

I just had this problem when I transferred my files to a new computer via Time Machine. I came across a solution quite by accident. I moved the folder that was unopenable onto my desktop. Then I put it in the trash. Then I took it out of the trash and it opened just fine. It may be worth a try. I realize this is a few years too late, but if I had this problem then others will too, and this worked for me.
