Windows 7: Can't uncheck read-only attribute

13 Jun 2010   #21

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Ashampoo Burning Studio and a .mdf file i want to burn. When i want to add it, it says: remove writing protection (or so). And yes, i tried other burning software. Didn't help.

Edit: And the .mdf file doesn't have the read only box checked, it has the folder it is in. I tried to move it, but again remove writing protection

True. And not really an issue.

You can however make sure, or add your user name to the folder in question, and that you have "full" permissions. So.....

Check to make sure your user name is included in the "Security" tab and has full read/write permissions for the folder(s). Requires Admin rights! See Tutorial on Sharing and Permissions – If you don’t want/need to share the folder just do steps 1-7
