Read-only files in My games?why can't I get read-write permission
I've installed fallout but can't get it to run,seemingly because my DOCUMENTS library won't turn off read-only status for My games (or anything else).
I've run through ownerships+permissions as best I can but I can't get rid of read-only,which seems VERY odd for a documents folder ;Can anyone help?I'm comming from XP so poss. I'm missing something obvious

There's a difference between a checked checkbox and a null (filled) checkbox. Apparently the "Read Only" attribute on folders is only meant as a way to set the "Read Only" attribute on files within the folder--there is no actual attribute flag for the folder object itself, so it doesn't store any value. This is admittedly confusing behavior, though technically correct.
In other words, it isn't actually set to Read Only.
