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

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?
