When you attempt to save changes made to a Web on your hard disk, you may receive an error message similar to the following:
Cannot open file ...\_vti_pvt\service.lck for writing.
This behavior occurs if the Web was copied from CD-ROM so that all .lck files were marked as read-only.
To resolve this problem, remove the read-only attribute. To do this, use either of the following methods.
Method 1: Change the Attributes of the Webs and Subwebs in Windows
Method 2: Change the Attributes by Using the XCopy Command at the Command Prompt
