after replacement and reinstalling XP with SP3 when I put my profile

has any one heard of this problem?
also all files on the gdrive are read only
If it's a CD-ROM, that's normal (not that a CD-ROM would hold a full
backup of a modern HDD...).
As for making your profile work, just right-click on the folder (in
Windows Explorer), choose "Properties," and clear the "Read-only"
checkbox. You'll be prompted to decide whether you want this to apply
only to the folder itself or to all its files and subfolders as well;
You may need admin privileges to do this, I'm not sure.
when I do this and come back properties are still read only
normally if I save to cd then transfere back to hard drive it clears but
When I do it (Win XP Pro SP3), I clear the check box, click "Apply,"
choose "Apply changes to this folder, subfolders and files," "OK," and
it works first time, every time.
If that's not your experience, I don't know what to tell you.
War doesn't determine who's right, just who's left.
