I've just installed a new hard drive onto our windows 2003 server; everytime I create a folder and share it, i'm not able to write to it after setting the permissions; I'm unable to untick the Read-Only box, it seems grey out and ticked.

    You may need to give yourself rights.

    right click on the drive then properties, security, advanced then owner then click your name then ok and try it then

    I've just tried clicking my name as the owner and still not able to create a folder after giving a user read write permissions; still not able to untick the "Read Only" on a folder.
