Win 7 resets all networked files/folders to Read-Only
Every time I make a file or folder Read-Only for the other computer on my network, Win 7Pro 64 bit resets them to Read-Only.
I've tried solutions from various threads and forums (details below) but they're not working.
This is only a problem when the other networked computer, which is XP, attempts to save files on the Win 7 machine.
Everything is fine with reading and writing 'within' the Win 7 machine. And, the 7 machine *can* save networked files on the XP machine.
This is a network with just two computers, one 7 Pro and one XP Pro sp3. Both have one account each, the Administrator.
I get one of the 2 following error messages when the XP machine attempts to save changes to a file on the Win 7 machine. Note that I'm *not* getting error messages about accounts or administrator privileges.
(1) Cannot create the \\Rthinkpad\test\anothertest.txt file.
Make sure that the path and filename are correct
'text.xls' is read-only. To save a copy, click OK, then give the workbook a new name in the Save As dialog box.
ATTEMPTS TO SOLVE PROBLEM:
These are the folder and networking settings I've applied:
