Follow the steps below to grant you full access to folder. This is the only case where the +r flag on a directory is honored by Windows for it's named purpose. I don't know why, but it worked. I then tell it to apply changes to all subfolders and files. Truthfully, under normal circumstances we shouldn't be changing permissions on a whim.
It wasn't able to save the project files because of the read-only status. No other behavior makes sense. I'm logged in as Adminstrator because I'm the only user and its not connected to the internet, yet. I'm also using a program that needs write access to the program files directory. And why the hell does Windows think that I want everything read only? A check box at three states: Unchecked - Intermediate - Checked.
Most likely you need to reset the permissions of this folder. I checked on the Security tab and as administrator I have got full access. No matter how many times I try to disable read-only it always comes back with a grayed check box. I downloaded and installed windows 10 last week. Any other folder I manually create has users and adding Users to the OneDrive folder solved the problem. Is this just a security feature that can be disabled? This applies to all folders I have checked. So of course people are going to wonder what the hell is going on.
Taking ownership of folder also has no effect. I go into command prompt and can't get the -r to work. I tried many things to get out of this unsuccessfully - hours and hours of useless work. I had a linux distro that would show the internet disconnected both when it was and when it wasn't. Could that be the case, if so, then I need to quit trying to put them in.
Only displays temporarily for a folder while setting to be applied to files in folder. I changed it back to administrator and applied that to subfolders and then tried to remove read only but I have the same result. To resolve your concern, we recommend that you follow the troubleshooting steps that were provided by KeithM-60601 and Anup Karkal last January 7, 2016 in this thread:. My program won't allow my to exit without writing to a log. I've just got my new Vista laptop and am having trouble with folder properties. It will always display as an intermediate value. I am the owner, I give to.
Take Ownership of the folder If logging in as an administrator does not help, it must be that the ownership of the folder is registered to some other system account. As i have local admin details as well tried with those also but did not worked. How do I access the folder on my D drive? I then tried cmd again with the +S and rebooted - still did not change anything. Correct this by following these steps to take ownership and then grant yourself full access to the folder. However, I still can't change it to nothing empty nor read-only tick. It goes through all the files and completes but nothing has changed.
My files are still unaccessible - word, excel, money, etc. And I'm unable to change this Read-only setting as it always just reverts right back. Are there any solutions to this? Sounds like there might be an issue with the program itself, but I can't think what though. I have troubles with the read-only attribute of folders. I tried -s also with a few variations with no luck. Remember to read the instructions thoroughly.
This week I discovered that all my files are effectively blocked - I cannot edit them and save them I can however copy them elsewhere, e. Folder is Read-Only and upon access says Access Denied let's me in As administrator. This state can be true of every folder and so this flag is meaningless and useless. . I tried using Command Prompt to remove the Read Only attribute but the error message still appears. Then I tried to access my Photos folder on drive D and got the error Access is denied It turned my folder into a Read Only folder. Some of the files are still read only.
Naturally they're the core shares for the system. If you mean folders containing emails, are you sure transferring them is going to work? Is it possible that you're trying to achieve something else? The best I can get with explicitly giving my user Full Control and Modify permissions Full Control gives all the others , and setting my drive, folder, subfolder, subfolder below that for Full Control and read-write. But at least it explains how does the computer continue to work. Like wise for checking the box to apply the attribute to all files. You'll probably find that the log file write has been virtualised and stored in your user profile. Edit 3: I left the company which I worked on, on which this situation happened.
My preferred way is to press the key combination Win+E. All other folders on the drive work normally. I uncheck the read-only attribute and hit apply and ok, but when I open the folder properties again, the box is checked again. I have tried this before, when I first got win 10 last year.
