File Marked Read Only after moving from Drive to Drive

Over the weekend I moved about 800 GB of data from one drive to another one on the same server. the two drive are on different physical RAIDs, but same server.

Everything seems to be marked as read only? Even after going to one of the root level folders and clearing the read only box (which is grey and not completely black) the files are still marked read only.

What am I forgetting - after spending hours cleaning up the 255 characters file name limit, what am I missing?

Thanks

If you just copied the files from one folder to another, the ACLs would not have been copied. When I migrate data, I use xcopy with the switch to copy ACLs. You will need to edit ntfs permissions on the parent folder and propagate. Also, please check the share permissions, default share is set to read only.
