Hi guys and girl. I have an IT question to ask, because it is seriously bothering me now. As you may know i modify computer games. To cut a long story short, i have a folder in my C:/ which runs the game. I have added all my files into it and all is perfect. Now, for the issue. If i copy the gamefiles from that folder to anywhere else on the pc, they are not the same.. they actually revert to a previous state, almost like they have not saved, but clearly they have as the game reads them. I can't seem to copy them as they are in the C:/ into a zip/rar to complete the mod, so essentially i cannot get my data from my PC to another PC without these odd changes. Some of the files are ok, but others are not. This is a little bit out of my depth, and i know Vista is full of bugs, and this has never happened to me before. All i can say i have done is that i have not saved over the files, rather i have opened them up from inside the folder, edited it, saved it and all is fine, until i try to move them anywhere else. I notice the folder is ticked as 'read only'. Would this have any affect on why it won't seem to copy the files? Please help if you can. I have tried everything i can and i can't get them off my PC for others to install. Any ideas?
