i have a databse file in a certain folder that my sqlexpress2005 is trying to acess, but it cant because it says the database is read only, so i did some searching and people say to give write permissions to the user of the asp.net.

ok so i goto the folder where the database files are and i click on properties and i uncheck read-only
it then asks me if i want these changes to be applied to subfolders and i see yes, then i close it

then if i click on the folder and right click and choose properties i see that the read-only box is STILL checked??

what do I do?

please be more exact... as there are no rights called "read-only" i really do not know what are you talking about. there is a file atribute "read-only" but if you want to set permissions to user you have to go to the security tab instead of the general tab when you click properties of the folder...

as i said: in the security tab of your folder properties... add a desired user and select desired permissions (probably modify)

All files inherit settings from the parent folder by default.  You can't set the same user to have more rights to the file in that folder if you maintain the inherit flag from the parent folder on that file.

I suspect you should add this user to the parent folder's security rather than the file itself.  Give it Modify rights.  You should be okay with that now.
