Why would Folders be read only on a file server?
Posted on 2006-04-18
Im running into a weird issue I hope you all can help me with.
I have a Dell PowerEdge 2800 running Windows 2003 Enterprise. It has 10 physical drives - 2 of them mirrored for the OS and the other 8 running RAID5 with 2.1TB of storage.
Programs I have installed
- Wincloak by ScriptLogic
- Diskeeper 10 Standard
- SAV Corporate
- Server SP1 and all Windows updates
So nothing out of the ordinary. However, about 2/3rds of my directories on the server somehow moved to read only. When I remove the read only, force it to remove the read only to all files/folders under the root, it removes it fine. I close say the My Computer applet, when i open the applet again, browse to a folder/drive, the read only is back in place. I have called Scriptlogic to see if WinCloak could be causing this, they explicitly deny no its not. I dont know what else could be causing this. Any help would be greatly appreicated.
