Files in Shared User folder all behaving like "read only" even though folder and files do not have that attribute.

I have a couple of users that cannot edit files in their shared folder.  I have changed share permissions and security permissions to no avail.  They can open the files, but when they try to edit or save the files, they say they are read only.  They are not allowed to save new documents to the folder either for the same reason.

All of the Users are using the same shared folder or their 'own' Network Folder?
If all of them are using the same shared folder on the Server, then is this problem with few selected users or all of the users saving\editing files in that folder?

They all share the "Users" folder, but have individual network folders.  I actually figured this one out on my own already.  I changed the "Owner" of the "Users" folder and all the subfolders and files to the built Domain Administrator Account.  For some reason it was set to the Administrators Group as the owner.

Hello Tim, I have no issues with the question being closed. And since I only asked questions and never really answered, closing the question after refunding the entire points without breaking them down is a better idea..:) but then again, this is what 'I' feel. Cheers !!
