File Manager Directory Permission

I connected an external hard drive via a USB. It worked fine until I installed IBM Websphere Application Server 8.5. Now, when I click on a directory, it does not open the sub-directory. So I need to reset the permission to read/modify then it allows me again.

I just wonder how this could happen? How to avoid it and how can I correct it?
