SQL Server version is as follows :

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 (RTM) - 10.50.1600.1 (Intel X86)
Copyright (c) Microsoft Corporation
Standard Edition on Windows NT 5.2 (Build 3790: Service Pack 2)

In SQL Server Management Studio, under the Management node, I am unable to view the "Maintenence Folder" node. I am logged in as sa, and the account does have the sysadmin server role.

How do I get access to the "Maintenance Folder"?
