Cannot Move Folder from USB drive to Desktop

Hi

Last time I backed up, I put a variety of foles and folders into a folder called Documents Content and copied it onto a USB drive. Now I cant move it back to the desktop. I tried dragging it, and copying/paste but nothing happens. I am able to move the folders/files wontained in it, but cannot move the main folder. Other files and folders on the USB drag over without a problem.

I right clicked and saw the folder was read only; so I unchecked this and it still didnt work (said it only applied to files in the folder).

I've never had this problem before and am puzzled!
