    Unusual Permissions String


    I'm currently copying some files off of a remote (Windows) server, which I had backed up from Windows before installing Linux. However, they're all coming up with an orange background and with the permissions string of:
    Code:
    -rwxrwSr-t
    What does this mean, is it a problem and how can I sort it out?

    Cheers in advance,
    Dan
