Hi Dan,

This is a bit off-topic for this list, but that looks like you've
configured Samba to always force all files to be read/write by owner.
The "force security mode" setting says:
> Essentially, 'one' bits in this mask may be treated as a set of bits
that, when modifying security on a file, the user has always set to be on.
"Force create mode" seems to do the same thing, but only when files are
created.

Are you able to manually set the files read-only, via the Windows
Explorer properties dialog?
