    i wanted to ctrl x and ctrl v a folder, it worked but for the final step; deleting the original. i right click to find it is 'read only' mmm strange, i uncheck the 'read only' box and choose 'apply to this and all subfolders/files' boom, done? er not actually, i cannot delete the folder or its file (which btw is not even marked 'read only') and when i right click the folder, it is 'read only' again.

    thanks in advance to any helpers, ; ]
