Hi,
After migrating all my documents over, when I open them it says it's read only.  I can't create a new folder.  I checked the rights of that folder, and it's set to everyone full access.  am I missing anything??  i also tried the attribute -r -s command, and that didn't work.

Files and folders in that folder may not have inherited permissions.
Try this:
in folder's security tab click Advanced
 check that permission granted to Everyone has 'Apply To' set to 'This folder, subfolders and files'. If not edit the entry.
 tick 'Replace permission entries on all child objects...' and click OK

hope this helps

Are you working with a shared folder or did you copy the files to the Documents and Settings directory for a particular user - in the user's "My Documents" directory?

If it is indeed the user's "My Documents" directory and you have modified the security access settings I would suggest you return to Server Management - Users - select the user and then select the "Change User Permissions" option to reset the security access settings.

If its a shared folder, use Server Management -Shares (local)
If the directory appears in the Share Name Listing, select the folder and then select "Change Shared Folder Properties" to set the security access.  If the Folder is not listed in the Share Name listing use the "Add a Shared Folder" to share it and set the security access.
