read only Folders after restore


Recommended Posts

I have done a complete restore of my hard drive following a drive failure. Everything went smoothly except that now the permissions of my folders are all read only. I can uncheck the read only permission but it does not work and when I look at the permissions again the file is still read only. I am runing in Windows XP pro as an administrator. Also if I create new folders on the hard drive they default to read only.


What makes it more confusing is that I can change the permissions of individual files and I can create new folders within the supposedly readonly folders.


Has anyone any help/experience with this one?
