Windows 7: Locked files?

27 Mar 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit
Locked files?

Okay. This is driving me absolutely nuts. I have Windows 7 set to allow streaming to my Xbox 360 and it SHOULD see files that are dropped in the public folders and let me play them because I have public folder sharing on also.

Instead any files that I drop into the folder has a lock icon next to them. I figured this was some kind of permissions thing so opened the fine and everyone has full control over the file.

Does anyone know what I can do? And why this keeps happening? Screenshot linked below.
