Hi.\nMy mother has a backing up issue, and I don't use the same software as her,\nso I don't know quite what she might of done. I don't know if anyone can\nhelp, but this is the problem.\n\nShe saved a load of stuff onto a cd, out of 'My Documents', by way of\nbacking it up. Then their computer crashed and they had to format and\nreinstall.\n\nShe then copied her documents, from her backup cd, into 'My Documents' on\nthe HDD.\n\nUnfortunately, she can access the files and open them, but when she tries to\nsave any changes she has made, it says they are read only and the\nname/location will have to be changed. In the properties of the backup\nfolder on her cd, it says that the 200-odd files are 'read only'.\n\nAny ideas on how on earth she could have saved everything as read only, and\nif there's any way of changing this on mass, to save her having to open, and\nthen save, each file under a new name? With 200 files, this could really\ntake some time. Anyone help?
