Cannot change Read Only attribute

By fran ·
WinXP peer-peer 3 stations. File sharing enabled. Setup shares on main system but cannot effectively change "Read Only" property on data folder. Keeps reverting back even after "Apply". What am I missing?

I had the same problem but with the "archive" and the only way I found to fix it was to deselect "archive" and then select "read only" then apply. Then close the properties window and reopen and deselect "read only" and apply. It worked so for me so I would suggest trying the same thing and see if that solves the problem.

Try to go into system administration for each user and change the level of confidence.
