Read only message when opening on one storage device

(OP)
i have a new notebook with a partitioned drive.  I have lots of access databases.  One of my databases reports that it is read-only when I open it from drive D: (Local drive).  I can copy it to drive C: (Local drive) and it opens fine.  I can even put it on a thumb drive and it works.  I can also open other Access databases on drive D:

I don't understand.  Anyone enlighten me ???

RE: Read only message when opening on one storage device

Check Properties of the mdb file and its folder (Attributes and Security tab) on D:. You must have read and write access to the correspondent folder.
Strictly speaking, it's a question for Access or Win XP forum(s): it's not a general database discussion topic...

Duh.  I made a dumb error.  It's ok now.
