I just upgraded to Windows 8.1 pro, from 8.1 core. I made a folder, right-clicked on it to bring up menu, selected properties, then advanced properties, and checked the 'Encrypt contents ...' option. Because I am a super-clever & sneaky guy, I also made it a hidden folder.
Windows keeps applying the 'Read Only' attribute to the folder, and I am not sure why. I can remove the attribute to move new contents to the folder -the move operation still seems like it isn't working, but when I cancel the move operation, the file has, in-fact, been moved. After a few minutes though, the folder is 'Read Only' again.
Is this normal? and is there any way to prevent it?
