This is a misunderstanding many people make. Folders cannot be read only, only files can be. If you look closely in properties box for any folder, the 'read-only' tick-box is filled with a solid block which means that option does not apply to folders. Even if you tick it, it will change back to a solid block. Think about it, how can a folder be read-only. what would be the point? Making files read-only makes sense because it stops you from accidentally changing it. If a folder was read-only you wouldn't be able to save anything to it.
