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.

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.
