I'm running XP. Never come across this before. I do have admin rights (this
is my own home machine). I've tried with Windows Explorer and Windows
Commander - I can't even remove the read-only attribute on the file.
Pardon my ignroance - does taking ownership recursively of a folder apply
under XP home? If so, I have no idea how to do that, nor is that anything
I've ever needed to do.
Only thing I see when right clicking that folder is properties, and if I
uncheck Read-Only, when I hit apply I get access denied.
