Hi there;
You might want to consider changing thier standing.
i,e, go to Edit inthe top menu,then select all. Then go to one of the files, doesn't matter which 'They will all be grey" put your cursor over one and "Right Click". This should open a menu. Uncheck the read only box then got to advance and check the archiving box [on] and then hit apply.
This in thoery [should] solve your problem.
Another method is to go to the Folders in the Control Panel menu and uncheck all the boxes that hide files. make sure all are visible, this too should work very well.
Hope this has been of some help.
Good Luck
Aaron A Baker
