    I made some documents from a live Linux session that I saved to my Windows partition. I can open them in Windows, but they have a Shared icon and status in Windows Explorer. How can I get rid of this?

    What is the property of these files?
    Do they have anything under shared tab?
    You can also check the attributes (if you fancy the command line).

    Just curious here, but do you mean to check the attributes from windows or from linux? And if from windows, do you mean to use icacls <path> ?

    Alright. For some reason some files weren't inheriting permissions from the parent folders. I fixed it. However, I did notice all my pictures have permissions set for some weird account that only has Read permissions.

    Account Unknown(S-1-5-80-2375682873-768044350-3534595160-1005545032-2873800392)

    However, it comes from My Pictures so I can't edit and get rid of it without removing all inherited permissions.
