Tanya B.,
It is possible that the file from Apex has restrictions on it.

Right click the file and select properities. See if it is "Archive"
or "Read only".

If you can't change it. You can save it a zip disk and change it on
the disk. The permissions won't stop you when you copy it outside
your hard drive.
