    Just thought of something. The image is mounted is read only. This must be why I can't change permissions do you think? I don't know if DI7 has a write mode. I'll take a look.

    Just as I thought, read only. No way to write to it.

    Ah, yep that would do it. You'll need to remove the read-only.

    It still doesn't explain why everything worked in the DOS box. I'm thinking of getting hold of a Norton Commander type program that uses 'DOS'. Do you know of any that work on W8?

    I found this: Far Manager Official Site : download Works great. It asks me if I want to run as admin when trying to access my folder.
