Before you read the issue, to be clear I am using the Administrator account on the server. The F drive is inside the server.
Originally I wanted to clear the read only attribute to the F:\Recovered Data Folder. Everytime i cleared the attribute and pressed okay, it would say its done and when i checked it again, the check mark was back to read only. I decided to make another folder on the same drive and had the same exact problem. I checked the F: drive security settings, everything seemed normal, Administrators have full rights and everything.
The next step I tried was making a folder on the DESKTOP on the SERVER, called test. I then checked the attributes to it and it said read only. I unchecked it and pressed ok and then checked the folder again, and it still put the read-only attribute back.
I have tried http://support.microsoft.com/kb/326549/
When i did the following to the test folder on desktop:
attrib -r +s C:\Users\Administrator\Des
i had no error messages in cmd after typing the command but it still didn't fix the read only issue.
When i did: attrib -r +s F:\Recovered Data
It said "Parameter format not correct - "
I can write into both folders, but I want to get the read only attribute unchecked.
I also took note that the read-only permission is gray and that usually means files within the folder are read only but the test folders i created do not have files that are read only inside them.
Anyone have any ideas?
