Working in Vista Business.

Never happened before.

Is there some fix?

Thanks in advance.

Hi, Russel.

Did you read this KB article?
You Cannot View or Change the Read-Only or System Attribute of Folders

Hi Russel,

In addition to R.C. White's post.

If the "Read Only" box is blue or blank, then it is not Read Only.
Only if it has a check in the box is it considered Read Only. However,
Vista will never see folders as Read Only, only files. Vista will just
change it back to a blue box.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
