Small Business Windows2003 Server will not let me change attributes of folder

Hi all.

We are in the process of moving some files from a windows2000 server to a small business windows 2003 server and one of the folders has to have the Read-Only attribute cleared so that anyone can save to that file. On the windows2000 server that worked fine, but when I want to do the same on the windows2003 server, it clears the Read-Only box but when I right click the folder again and go to properties to make sure it saved it, it fills the check box again.

Is there anyway to do this?

Hi there,

You may want to take a look at this

I had a similar problem myself but it turns out it has to do with the folder and not that actual files, however it may be different in you're case are the files still read only ?
