XP shared files read-only

I've got a problem on XP. I have some folders on a separate partition from my windows partition that I have shared on our local network here in the dorms. Before I shared the folders I could add and delete anything in them. Now the folders are locked as read-only and I can't do anything with them. Removing the sharing still gives the same problem.

Attempting to remove the read-only from the properties doesn't work as when the operation finishes they return to read-only. Tried a command in the command prompt that I thought might work: " attrib D:\ /S /D -R ", but access denied is returned on all the files. I am trying this from the account which shared the files, which is also an admin account.

Any ideas :confused:??

    The parent directory is set to read-only and the child files are inheriting the property.

    I've tried changing the read-only on both the files themselves and the parent directories, no dice.
