Read only permissions on entire volume

This can be used on servers and workstations

If you see a read only permission issue and you tired to fix it from the advanced properties and it doesn’t work then give this a try
1.Open a command prompt (ie. Start > Run > cmd) with administrative privileges
2.Type in the command: diskpart
3.Run the command: list disk
4.Look for the disk number that’s having the problem. In my case I have a system drive, a RAID 5 configuration (1 logical drive) and then the new drive, so it was DISK 2. I will continue to use it in the example but note that yours may differ.
5.Select the disk using the following command: sel disk 2
6.Enter the following command: ATTRIBUTES DISK CLEAR READONLY
7.Exit diskpart with the command: exit

For specific volumes use this command

list volume
sel vol 0 (my problem was on volume 0)
detail volume (just to see the status)
ATTRIBUTES VOL CLEAR READONLY
detail volume (just to see the status, again)

You may have to restart the server or workstation afterwards.
