Yep, it was what got me to check the files instead of the folder. Cheers!

Yes, they have the +r file attribute to them. See step 12 in Method Two here for how to run the attribute command like them, but on the user folder you need it for instead.

What folder do you need to this on, and I'll be happy to post back the correct command for it?
