I have a rar file that I need to extract. Both Winrar and WinZip say it cannot due to not having permissions. I go to the properties there is only the general tab no security tab. Simple file sharing is disabled, all other files and folders have it.

How do I get to see the permissions on this file?

Thanks

Important: If you are not joined to a domain and you want to view the Security tab:
Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
Click Appearance and Themes, and then click Folder Options.
Click the View tab, and then click to clear the Use simple file sharing [Recommended] check box in the Advanced settings box.

Try Unlocking the file with this program: http://lockhunter.com/

I cannot, its off a private site, that requires credentials. I had a work around though, I was able to have them extract it and I FTP'd the files down un-compressed and it works now.
I am not sure why it was having so many problems, but Im good.

Thanks.
