Powerpoint files won't save - folder marked as read only?!
Suddenly the RMshared folder on our server is giving users the message that a file already exists with the name they are trying to save in Powerpoint. If the students try to save itit says that the sharedfolder\foldername is read only. There appears a file with the name they want to save with no kb (i.e. an empty file).
The shared folder says read only with the correct share permissions and NTFS permissions assigned accordly.
I have click on the read-only attribute to take it off and it proceeds to do that to all the folders and files in the share. But when I click on properties it still says read-only and the users still can't save to the folder.
Anyone come across this problem before?

Hmmm...we've seen that too before. I can't think for the life of me how we fixed it but I know that a health check will reset the ntfs permissions on those folders to match what's set in the management console. Maybe worth a look there?

That's your problem. In Windows Server 2003, shares by default are read only. You need to set this to Everyone Full Control. Your NTFS permissions will deal with the rest (providing they're correct too).
The shared folder says read only
