I've only been using Win 7 for a week and this particular issue is already making me lose the will to live.
Having copied the entire website from a machine running XP Pro - where the site was in the root directory ie C:\name_of_website
into the root directory of Win 7 and have now run into problems with permissions etc.
When I checked properties on the newly formed C:\name_of_website
in Win 7 I saw it had been assigned a read-only status. I unticked that item, applied and saved, but it reverts back to the read-only status. Is this some security aspect that is assigned to any folders in the root directory?
I have also checked that I am the sole administrator with full access rights and am wondering whether I will have to create a new website folder other than C: - but where? There seems to be several choices:
Libraries/create new folder
User name/My Documents
User name/create new folder
Any advice offered will be gratefully received.
