since i read recently several reports about problems with write protected files, I’ll post a short guide how to “unprotect” them.
First of all: This is a known issue (see bug report #776).
So, let’s assume you have created a vault
myVault and it is stored under the path
D:\path\to\myVault ( NOT the location of your unlocked vault).
- Open a terminal
- Change to the encrypted vault:
- Enter the following command and hit enter:
attrib -R /S
The command will remove the write protection file attribute from any file in
D:\path\to\myVault and any subdirectory. After it, you should be able to do normal actions on the previous write protected files in your unlocked vault (e.g. delete them).
Addendum: If the files are additionally hidden or marked as system files, you need a terminal with admin privileges and add to the attrib command the
Hope that helps.
