I am gleefully switching as much stuff as I can away from windows and in our small office I installed Suse & Samba on a machine to be our storage server. Last nite after copying all my existing files over to samba I discovered that they now are all read only. Specifically the permissions on the files have been changed to Archived. So when I try and open an autocad file I get the msg.
The file you are trying to open is either in use or locked...
Something along those lines..... My main workstations are XP Pro and I know that sometimes when trading files amongst themselves XP will set it to read only but I havenever seen "archive" before.
Is it possible to change the attributes globally on all files I have copied in?
Is this something that happened to the files once they arrived based on my smb.conf? And can I changed/add something to each folder so all users can modify? I have set up each folder that the files are in to chmod 777.
I am at a loss ....any ideas are much appreciated
