Have this user who is usually in another office hooked to another domain, where she saves document to an external drive. Now in my office, using one of my computers, all  documents opening from the drive are 'read only'.

If she copies the document to the desktop, then it works fine.

why is this?

Problem is related only to the files which were previously saved with Windows XP.
