Files read only

Weird problem. I have a user opens files on a mapped drive and they come up as read only. However, if you navigate to the file through the network, the file opens and is modifiable.
Tried re-mapping the drive and logging her into another computer but same scenario. Made sure the file was closed on the server as well. Any ideas?

Did you also check the share permissions on the folder?  What are the share and what are the NTFS permissions for the user?

Thanks

Is it possible that the MAP drive was mapped with credentials that have read only permission?

Check the ntfs permissiom it could be that it is inherited from parent folder which may causing thr issue.On the share permission add everyone with full control and check.

Try accessing the usn path from client machine do you get read only permission.Also can post the printscreen of error.

If the file is in use by another application or another user, it will be "locked" and come up "read only". This is Microsoft's method of file locking for Office applications to prevent two users from altering a document at the same time.

You can check this on your server for verification. Next time it happens look at the server where her "user drive" is. Open computer management console for the server. Go to shared folders>open files.

You should be able to see any open files. Hopefully you'll be able to see what user or application is locking the document.

Already checked open files in computer management. Had the user log out and verified that the files closed, which they did. Logged back in and still came up as read only.
