Are those files on your external SD card? Since KitKat, only system apps have full read/write access to the external storage.
Either use the provided File Commander, or root and modify the SD card permissions with an app like this, then any file manager will work again.

Or use File Commander if it's preinstalled in your rom. It's a system app, therefore has full read and write permissions for external storage.
