Solved

After I restored the user directories via backupexec the files and folders act like they are ready only.

If you go to the actual folder and look at security settings the correct permissions are there but when users try to access the files they are told it is read only.

Dear cheesebugah,
Check the Share permissions. It may be having read permission for the users

Cheers!

There are some patches relating to this for different versions, such as:

But you may have to manually change the file attributes at a command using similar to:
attrib  -R  F:\Data  /S /D

Also, are they truly read only or just the check box under the file/folder's properties. This is un-related, a MS quirk  :-)

Yes, it was the share permissions on the folder?  How the hell does that happen?
