F: drive stuck on "Read Only"
Something rather bizarre happened. For months, my Windows 7 has been running smoothly and without a glitch. Quite the opposite in fact and it was rather nice. Now, all of a sudden, my entire F:\-Drive (the one where I have all my non-installable data on, such as pictures and videos and all that) is stuck on "Read Only". No problem, I thought, so I rightclicked on a folder, unchecked "Read Only" and hit OK. It seemed to apply everything just fine. No warnings, no errors, it went without a hitch. Still, I couldn't write data anymore. So I rightclicked the folder again, there it was: The "Read Only" had checked itself again. This keeps happening.
So I've tried the Take Ownership tool in the first post, and that seemed to work just fine as well. I then set full access permission to everyone because I'm pretty much the only one on this network and this computer. Still, I cannot write data. The "Read Only" box keeps checking itself.
I turn to you for help. What can I do to have this fixed? Thanks in advance.

Hello Ana, and welcome to Seven Forums.
Just to make sure, are you sure that it's read only? A blue square is not read-only.
You could try the command below in a elevated command prompt from Option Two in METHOD TWO in the tutorial below to see if it may help. It will remove the read only and system attribute from all contents on the F: drive.
Read-only File and Folder Attribute
attrib -r - s "F:\*.*" /S /D
Hope this helps,
