:( Hi,

In trying to figure out what happened with my folder views, I realized that many of my folders are "read only". This happened because I was transporting data from one PC to a new PC and had to copy onto CD, then onto the new PC. I thought I had changed everything, once copied, to uncheck "read only", but apparently I did not . When I tried to change a couple of the folders/contents, I noticed that the security/user screen showed the allow fields as gray. I read the help for this and it says that is because this folder is mirroring the "parent" folder. How can I correct this? I tried unchecking "Allow Inheritable Permissions from Parent Folder", but it does not make any difference.

I think this is the root of why the view for all of my folders is messed up. How can I change this globally?

Thanks.
