    Offline Files keep turning to Read Only

    I have a user (our VP) that has about 30 gigs of our files as offline files on his laptop... he is the only person that has this access.

    For some reason in the last week, all the folders have become read only on his laptop... i mark them as normal, and immediately check the status of the folder, and they are read only again.

    I am completely lost on what is going on. any ideas?

    He is on win 7 64bit. and we use server 2011 essentials as the file server.

    Can you not take ownership of the folder and child objects as an administrator (removing all other user permissions) and then reset the attributes, give VP full control and you should be back on track.....

    Just a thought
