Git Question

Git gives me a "Permission Denied" error when writing files that I am pulling

On my Windows machine, when I pull my repo I get:

error: unable to crate file <path to file> (Permission denied)


I think the problem might be that when I look at the properties of the folder there is a square inside the checkbox, I clear it out so that no files or folders will be read only.

After pressing ok and checking to see if Windows applied my changes, I see the square again!

How can I get Git or Windows to allow me to get my commits?

Run the Git Bash or the console you are running, with Run As Administrator
