Read Only Files & Folders on a Win 2000 Server
Posted on 2006-04-23
I have a Windows 2000 Server that crashed. I was able to recover data from a mirrored drive. I copied the data from the mirrored drive to a new hard disk on the server.
When accessing the data from a Windows XP client, all the files/folders are READ ONLY. If I copy the files to the local client, I have Full Control. If I copy them back to the server in a different location, the files and folders are read only.
When looking at the file attributes on the Windows 2000 Server, the READ ONLY checkbox IS NOT checked. It's only checked when browsing to a network share from the Windows XP client. So, I'm thinking it's a permissions issue, but I can't figure out how to make the files available with FULL CONTROL for the XP client.
The XP machine and the Windows 2000 Server had the same Admin user account and password name. They're part of a workgroup, not a domain.
Anyone have any suggestions to try to provide the XP client with Full Control of these files and folders?
