hi mate Smiley

in a small LAN 15 PCs, 1 w3k server, working in Workgroup environment, the data files and folders are located in the system drive C: of the w3k server and mirrored.

when I came to this company I noticed that all that folders and files are "read only", I tryed to change that attribute with no avail.
each time it turns back the previous state "Read only".

anyway, I moved all the data to another partition in the same HD in order to be able to change that attribute with no avail also.

are there any new feature in w3k preventing from doing that.

thank you

This feature is there by design. If you looke at any folder in %systemroot%\windows you will see this as read-only. The only thing you need to worry about is permissions.

Sounds like you have some serious access controls there Wink

How is this file being accessed. Is it being accessed via DFS or a regular network share? I would look at the KB as it could be an issue with excel. I have seen this. Also if it is in DFS then we can get access denied if someone or something else has a handle on the opened file. I would use filemon from sysinternals to see what has a handle on the file when you receive access is denied.

No DFS
regular network share, simply workgroup environment.

anyway, after coping all folders back to C: , they work.

I suspect one thing;  they are using an old DOS based program, for account process, I think it makes these problems, what do you think?

That could be a possibility. I have seen instances when another program has access to a file, ie backup software or something else, where this will put the file in a locked state and thus cause it to be read-only.

We had an instance just a couple of weeks back where after applying a particular MS Vulnerability patch, a small third party "disk quota" tool our server team had running began locking all data file access in similar fashion.  After locking down a particular service they were able to isolate the issue.  Try the elimination process and you'll hopefully find what's happening.

Well, I actually suspect backup software bundled with an external HD

SimpleDrive, StorageSync :mad:
