When you copy files to a CD they become read only - sometimes when you copy them back to a disk they remain "read only" - this can happen particularly if you copy folders at a time and the whole folder becomes read only. Simply click on the folder and reset properties - It will ask you if you want to change the properties of all the files and sub files in the folder.
The only other cause I can think of is that you haven't set your account with full admin privilege.
Also why not use the "settings and transfer wizard"
one Hard disk to another device - and put it back without the need of 'take ownership' step?
Pentium 4 2.4ghz, 256mb memory, 64mb VGA, NTFS, Windows XP-Pro-SP2 + most of critical updates, NAV, Adaware Se, Spybot SD, Spywareblaster (all with the latest updates- run all + online scan, found nothing bad)
Copying files from a computer to another storage device (Hard disk, CD, external storage device etc.)
Reformat (NTFS) and Reinstall the computer... (windows XP Pro + including SP2 and most of the critical updates + all needed application)
Copy back the files...
Everything seems OK.
On the newly reformat/reinstall computer...
I can Open and Edit the files, BUT I can not SAVE it, I can not Delete (any files or folder)
with a message Access denied and/or files being use..
Solved the problem by 'Taking the ownership' of those files and folder.
How to copy the files and folder, so I don't have to do 'Take ownership' ritual?
Thank you for any information and help.
