Hi,

This is probably a permissions issue.

\015\012To\015\012 see your permissions, right click the folder/file, click on properties,\015\012 and check out the security tab. Check to see what permissions you have\015\012 by clicking on your username (or user group). Here are the types of \015\012permissions you can have: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/What-are-permissions. \015\012 You need to be an administrator or the owner to change permissions (and\015\012 sometimes being an administrator or even an owner isn't enough - there \015\012are ways to block even them from access (though a smart administrator \015\012knows these ways and can get around them - but usually shouldn't because\015\012 they were denied access usually for a very good reason). Here's how to\015\012 change folder permissions in Vista: http://www.online-tech-tips.com/windows-vista/set-file-folder-permissions-vista/. To\015\012 add take and grant full right permissions and ownership to the right \015\012click menu (which will make it faster to get in once it is set up), \015\012check out the following article: http://www.mydigitallife.info/2009/05/21/take-and-grant-full-control-permissions-and-ownership-in-windows-7-or-vista-right-click-menu/.

To fix this problem with the folders, take ownership\015\012 of the folders or the drive (as an administrator) and give yourself \015\012full rights. Right click the folder/drive, click on properties, go to \015\012the security tab and click on Advanced and then click on the Owner tab. \015\012 Click edit and then click the name of the person you want to give \015\012ownership to (you may need to add it if it isn't there - or it may be \015\012yourself). If you want it to apply to sub-folders and files within that \015\012folder/drive, then check the box for replace owner on sub-containers and\015\012 objects and click OK. Back out and now there's a new owner for the \015\012folders/drive and files who can change permissions as needed. You can \015\012now change them from read-only (even if the main folder says they still \015\012are read only - you can have access yourself as the owner). You can \015\012keep them as read-only for other users and guests and even \015\012administrators (though they can take ownership themselves and gain \015\012access if they so desire and there really isn't much you can do to stop \015\012this except protect the folder with a password using a 3rd party \015\012product. Here's more information on taking ownership of a file or \015\012folder:
http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/67717-take-ownership-file.html. To\015\012 add take ownership to the right click menu (which will make it faster \015\012to get in once it is set up), check out the following article: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/add-take-ownership-to-explorer-right-click-menu-in-vista/.
