Converting Read Only files to editable ones
by grandpaw7 - 10/11/04 9:29 AM
I recently had a computer reformatted. The data was saved to a folder which is now on the reformatted hard drive, and is at C:\backup. But they are all Read Only files and I want to conver them to editable files.
Is there some way I can convert them all to editable files at one time, rather than have to deal with each one individually?
If I have to deal with each one individually, do I just go to Save As and change the name of the file, for example, from C:\backup\My Documents\Whatever to C:\My Documents\Whatever, that is, just by deleting the word "backup" from the file name? I say that because when I open a particular file and then click on Save, I am told it is a Read Only file and that I should save it with another file name or to another location.
