Can't Uncheck Read Only from properties

We are having an issue with a file upload and everything looks correct on the folder except for the Read Only check box on the General tab. From my experience this can cause permission issues for Accessing local databases and files. When I try to "uncheck" this box it appears to work. When I go back in to look, the check box is checked again. Apparently it won't let me uncheck this box. What am I missing???

Verify that security permissions are not inherited from the parent folder. You can check the same by clicking on "Advanced" tab in security permissions window.

The Security tab and settings are set up correctly. There is no problem there. But.....on the General tab, it won't let me uncheck the Read-only check box. This is where I believe the problem is stemming from. I tried unchecking this option on every parent to the top. None will get unchecked. I even uchecked the inherit permission from parent option as you suggested  but the Read-only check box still keeps being checked by default.

So I shouldn't worry about the "Read-only" check box but look for permissions related problem on the security tab?
Check out my problem up there...Under Windows 2003 server, all of the server shares now are default to Read-only...so, that may be your problem. Don't just look at the server permissions, but also the share permissions.  Let me know if that makes sense.

No you dont need to worry about those read only option which is default for the folder in NTFS if you still want to work around with it then go through this document

HangTen, that is correct....check for perm problems on the share level and NTFS level.
