    I cant get the folder out of read only mode, I can download anything to them. keeps telling me to contact admin.

    I also notice that when I try to share a folder that was previously shared when I was running vista, they are makred as unknown owner and I cant get that removed.

    if you have admin access on your computer you can right click the folder, goto properties, in the first tab there should be a read-only box checked. un-check it. if you dont have admin access this wont work

    i uncheck it then go back to look and see if takes and it doesnt.

    I was able to remove the unknown contact as owner by right clicking the hard drive (d:), security, advanced, owner, edit, click on my user name, check the box that says replace owner on subcontainer and object, then apply.
