Currently Troubleshooting an issue on our file server with a large share where I as an admin via any commputer am unable to copy or save changes to the share.

Will having the read only check box affect users from copying or making changes to files\folder  in the sub folders on a network share? Event though Ntfs permissions and share permissions have been set accordingly.

Thanks

Read-only attributes trumps privileges. But remember read-only is only appliable to files, not folders, even if it looks different.
