This is not my first rodeo for sure. Well with win7 I guess it is. Anyway, I can't seem to get rid of the the read only attrib on a directory. I remove it and apply and close the window but when I look at the properties again, the box is colored again. (not a check mark) Meaning something in the strucure is still read only. And yes, I told it to propogate to the entire dir structure..... I have delt with this years ago but can't remember how I fixed it......any ideas??
