Exactly what I was going to say.

1. Safe mode - to unlock any locks it might have
2. Take ownership
3. Change permissions to ensure that the owner (now you) has all
4. Run attrib

Lastly: If this fails, run checkdisk on the drive and repeat.

Good Luck!

Ha! Safe Mode let me do whatever I wanted with it. I cannot believe that it never occurred to me (nor would it have) to try that. Thanks so much Tews And thanks to everyone else as well
