Currently I have an NT 4 domain with one PDC, one BDC, Print server, and Exchange server.  Our current operatiing systems are some NT workstations, 2000, and XP.  We do have some 95 and 98 machines but they are only used for time clock purposes.  

The issue I have is I have two users with XP.  They have change rights to certain files on the network.  They are really the only person with these rights.  Everyone else has read.  They are have issues when trying to open the file and make changes.  The file opens as read only.  We check to make sure no one has it open but still the file opens as read only.  At random they may get the file to open not read only but mostly it opens as read only.  

The other user is trying to open files in her home directory and they open as read only.  


Why is this happening and what should I change of look at to fix the problem.

Is it possible that the file are inheriting read-only permissions from parent folders?
