I'm using Windows XP on my work network. I'm trying to set READONLY permissions on a file at root c:\foo. The system lets me
1 Open File > Properties on the folder
2. Uncheck READONLY
3. Apply the change and close the property sheet
However, when I open the folder's properties sheet again, I find the checkbox is STILL set. I've asked my administrator about this behavior and he said he wasn't able to find out what is causing this.
I vaguely remember seeing this behavior before in relation to file sharing but I've turned off file sharing and I still have the problem. Any ideas?
