Tried it - - no dice. When I try to drag and drop it to my desktop it say it can not move it - may be in use (it isn't) still says access denied - read only file, even though in properties it says archive (still on floppy). If I could get to dos (with ME it's a bitch) does anyone still remember dos commands for changing attributes or is there a dos program that would help me? Very frustrating.
