Read only permissions

I am having a problem with permissions on my windows 2003 server.   All my files seem ot be read only.  I have tried unticking the read only tick box and applying to all sub folders.  Does not work.  I have tried resetting up my permissions but nothing works.  

I was working on the server yesterday which has obviously caused the problem.

I just added an additional harddrive to my server and resized the partitions on the old one.  I also copied files from the old hardrive to the the new one.  But the old one seems to be read only as well.
