Some things to try: 1. Change the attributes with the ATTRIB D.O.S. command 2. Try renaming the folder 3. Make a backup, delete the folder, create a new folder root and copy the files on it. Good luck Mauricio Fernández S.

Sorry for Cross-post from the Win 2 K list, but no response there and I thought you guys might be bored on a Friday. ? I have a work-related problem. Boring, I know. On a W2k3 Server, which is acting as a file-server and a Terminal Server (I know; but it?s only 7 seven people), one folder and all it?s sub-folders keeps reverting to Read-only. Symptoms: try to save as a normal user in Excel, and it say that the folder you are trying to save to is read-only. Save as Administrator and it?s fine. If I look at properties on the Folder, the Read-Only tick-box is grey-ticked (It has a tick, but not fully: like a backup folder where only half the sub-folders are going to be backed up). If I untick it, it asks if I?m sure I want to do this for sub-folders as well, I say yes, and it takes a few minutes changing all the permissions on itself and sub-folders. Go back out, look at properties again, and the half-tick is back. This folder is in the root of the drive, so I don?t think it can be inheriting read-only permissions from above. Any ideas?
