I need to remove the 'read only' attribute from a home video. In the Command prompt I can use "attribute -r" but I keep getting 'path not found' amongst other messages. My entry was, "attrib -r\C:Documents and Settings\ERNEST\My documents\My videos\file name. I used the file name with and without quotes and spaces and have permutated every entry. I thought I had it once to read 'incorrect switch - -r' but it was in the same place. With the cd in the drive there is no file path. Help!
Thank you Fruit Bat. When I uncheck the 'read only' box and try to edit, I get the 'Access denied' message. So I am still aiming for the right string in Ms Dos. The annoying thing is I am proficient in Basic and Cpm.
