What operating system are you using? If your using a Microsoft Windows operating system, you can go to Start->My Computer , open my computer, and right click on the drive in My Computer, and change the access of the drive there.

If your using a NIX(Linux, Unix, OSX) operating sytem, you need to mount the drive with rwx permissions, and to do that you'll have to edit the fstab file in /etc.

Which operating system ?
Encryption is a method of preventing unauthorized access to computer files.
When you apply encryption to a file, the file is altered so that it cannot be read by others, unless you have given them an encryption key.

Windows XP supports encryption through EFS, the Encrypting File System.
If you have encrypted a file on your Windows XP computer, but no longer want or need the file to be encrypted, you can remove file encryption by changing the file's properties in Windows Explorer. Locate the file from which you want to remove encryption in Windows Explorer.
Right-click on the file, then click the "Properties" link in the context-menu.

This opens a Properties window.
Click the "Advanced" button in the attributes section of the Properties window.

This opens the Advanced Attributes window.
Click to uncheck the box next to "Encrypt contents to secure data" in the Advanced Attributes window.

Click the "OK" button to close the Advanced Attributes window.
Click the "Apply" button in the Properties window, then click the "OK" button.

This closes the window and completes the encryption removal process.
Open Encrypted Files

Windows XP supports file encryption through EFS, the Encrypting File System.
You can encrypt files with EFS so that only you and designated users can open them.

You open files that you encrypted just as you would any other files.
However, you cannot open files that another user encrypted with EFS, and other users cannot open files that you encrypted, unless the user trying to open the file has been added to the list of authorized users for that file.

You can authorize users to open encrypted files using the Windows XP EFS management tools.
Click the "Start" button, then click the "My Computer" icon on the Start menu.

This opens the My Computer window. Navigate to the encrypted file for which you want add an authorized user.

Right click the encrypted file, then click the "Properties" link in the context menu. This opens the Properties window.

Click the "Advanced" button in the Properties window.
This opens the Advanced Attributes window.

Click the "Details" button in the Advanced Attributes window.
This opens the Encryption Details window.

Click the "Add" button in the Encryption Details window.
This opens the "Select User" dialog box.

Click the user you want authorize to open the encrypted file, then click the "OK" button.
This closes the dialog box.

Click the "OK" buttons in the Encryption Details and Advanced Attributes windows to close them. Click the "Apply" button in the Properties window, then click the "OK" button to close the window and complete the process.

How do I undo read only on jpg files

Try this, right click on the folder that contains the JPEG files (.jpg) or right click on a certain JPEG image and scroll down the pop up menu and select "properties", then from the properties window look down at the "attributes" section and then un-chech the read only box, then select "apply", and then "Ok'.

Of course you will most likely have to be logged on as an administrator to actually change that. Here are some images to help assist you.

I can;t rename the files

There's a good chance the file has the Read Only attribute. RIGHT click on one of the files and chooose Properties. Then look at the bottom of the box and look to see if "Read Only" is checked. If so, click on the check mark so it disappears and click "Apply". The try renaming the file. If that fixed it, then go back and highligt ALL files, right click and go to properties and remove the Read Only attribute for all files. You should be able to rename any or all files after that.

One other scenario is that you have the file open that you want to rename. You must close the file to rename it.
