User Account Control is off. It would seem that after taking UAC off, most folders (not all) still state "read only" whilst the contents does not-is this normal? It would seem that the hidden content could be a folders hidden image (eg showing an album cover) which might be why when I click on the album folder as a whole, it will still have a tick on "read only"? Is this the reason?
Im also wondering if UAC was back on, if all files from my documents would revert back to read only or not, and whether UAC on (or off) can prevent media files such as mp3s being updated in WMP. thanks
Read Only files are usually system files. By making a file a Read Only it prevents it from being tampered with. click here I've just checked my videos, in many different formats and NONE of them are set as Read Only.
