Set up new server and moved files from old hd to new one (both ntfs).  I am unable to strip the permissions for ONE particular folder.  No matter what I do, the folder remains read only.  I can modify permissions and add and/or take away whomever I'd like and apply to all sub folders.  Once that it done and I go back to look at security, everything I've done is reset and folder is back to read-only.  So users can open and manipulate but not save as same in this folder.

Help.

you should take the ownership of the folder at first, to do it: right click the folder name in windows explorer, choose Properties/Security, click Advanced/Owner, change the owner and check Replace owner on subcontainers and objects.

hope it helps,
