I am running a Windows Server 2008 (not R2) File Server and a mac (Mac OS X 10.8.3) is one of it's clients. when i download a file on the server itself and put iton the shared drive, it is "locked" when accessed through finder on the mac.


Is there some permission setting or something thats not right?


Any help will be much appreciated.

the files is downloaded from utorrent and I read in another forum that when the torrent uploader builds the package, they make it read-only to avoid accidentally modifying the file. 


I allways used to download the torrents on the mac client and then move them to the shared drive.

So if this is the case, than why did i never get any read-only files from utorrent for mac and ALL the files from utorent for windows are read-only???
