Read Only Documents RRS feed

  • Question

  • We randomly have documents that have been opened, revised, and opened again several times - no problems.  All of a sudden the document is a read only.  We can't seem to change it back we have to do a save as and rename it.  We can't delete the document nor can we move it.  Any suggestions??  This is driving my bosses crazy.
