   Thanks to all who replied.  It turned out that this directory was a 
automount.  I found that out by looking at /etc/mnttab.  Turns out that 
another admin in my team added this to the machines autmount dir recently.  
I guess its just a case of too many cooks in the kitchen.  Thanks again.

   I have a directory that appeared on my last reboot and is causing some 
problems for my backup software.  The problem is a directory 
/usr/lib/macros, which has the permissions:
dr-xr-xr-x root root 1 Sep 2 19:07 macros
   For some reason I cannot access, remove, change, cd, etc into this 
directory.  Before you ask, yes I am root when trying this.  I have tried 
and ls -l on the dir but cannot see it (permission denied), I have tried 
chmod -f, rm and ln -s /usr/lib/macros /tmp/macros but all not allowed me 
access the directory.  Any ideas, or suggestions?  Thanks in advance.
