Moving an Access backed db from one Sars Drive to another left the db READ-ONLY

A client moved their back-end db to a new Sars Drive -- same path and whatnot -- now the db is read-only. Any ideas why? They're shut down right now and I am out of my element here.

Thanks for any help.

Users must have read and write permissions to the folder.

Do all users  of the database have full permissions on  the folder?

OK Found the solution.

When moving from one share to the other, the ldb file came with -- We checked and there were a couple users still logged in.

Once they got out -- re-logged in -- all was right with the world.

Whew.
