Files in Snapshot "locked" so can't restore

Recommended Posts

I'm a new user of Retrospect. We have Retrospect 6.1 running on a Mac OS X 10.3.9 networked to all our computers through Mac OS X 10.5 Server. We have both Macs and PCs (just to keep things interesting!).


One of our PC laptops was stolen, so I tried to restore all the files from a snapshot to a different PC. Very few files copied, and when I looked into the folders in the snapshot most of the top-level folders had locks on them. The Retrospect manual says these were read-only files on the original computer, and therefore can't be restored.


It's a complete loss if this is true - is there any workaround to unlock these files so I can restore them???
