I can't set label color on a particular file, or rename the file, or duplicate the file.

Why not?


I'm in an Admin account.

Get File Info shows that the file is not locked.

Get File Info shows that the file is readable and writeable by my account, by staff, and by everyone.

In Terminal, "ls -l" agrees, showing that the file is readable and writable by user, group, and other.

I have write permission to the containing folder.

Disk Utility's Repair Disk Permissions didn't change the permissions.


What else can I try?
