All data files are 'read only' and 'not accessible (XP PRO - SP2)
I'm in deep yoghurt here, and hoping someone can bail me out.
Suddenly, all my 80GB of data files are marked "read only", but when I try to fix that, I'm told that "access is denied". I keep all data files on one disk (F, and all software on C: to make backup simpler, and maybe increase speed of execution. System has been working great, but now today, every file and folder on F: is marked "read only" (right-click on folder name | Properties and the Read-Only box has the green marker in it).
No problem, says I, being Administrator on the system --- I un-check the read-only box and click Apply. The system then tells me that "access is denied". But I'm the Administrator I say, but that doesn't seem to help a bit!! Grrrrr...
Does someone have an idea as to what to do next, before I throw this marvelous|terrible thing out the window?
