Corrupt or read only Office documents

I keep all my Office documents in one directory.

When I try to open any of them, I get either

File is corrupted or Files is Read only

What is going on ?

Just found out I can not create any new documents either ??

Check the permissions of the files and the directory itself. You need minimum 0600/-rw------- (your user has read + write permissions). “Defaults” are most likely 0664/-rw-rw-r-- .


After a reboot, I had no more problems.
