As a security measure, I placed all of my financial files in a zipped
compressed folder and protected the folder with a password.  Now I find the
files have been changed to Read-Only and, as such, they cannot be brought up
to date, or edited.  I have not been able to change the file properties, and
do not know of any procedure to follow to edit a file other than remove the
password protection, edit a file, and then go through the procedure of
compressing and password protecting the file again.  Does anyone have a more
realistic solution to protecting the privacy of sensitive files while
maintaining an easy method of editing?
