I am trying to comprehend file/folder permissions in Windows 7. I created a file and a folder(file1 and folder1) and provided both read permissions in explorer. I placed file1 and folder1 in an Explorer folder with an authenticated, system, administrator, and users with more permissions.
Problem: I was still able to write to file1. How do I make file1 truly read only?
If you're a command line type of person:
attrib +r filename.ext
