Netbeans not allowing to create project on windows

At times Netbeans does not allow you to create projects in some directories (on windows). I searched a lot but could not find any reasonable explanation for why windows turns some folders as read only. Anyways, run the following commands on those directories in which Netbeans is not letting you create the project.

Go to the command prompt and, issue
>attrib -r -s c:\some\directory
>attrib -r -s c:\other\directory

This removes the read only status.
