  • There is no sharing and permissions tab present in the "get info" pane.
  • Using "sudo chflags nouchg [filename]" on the file has no effect though also throws no errors in the terminal
  • Trying to delete the file or rename it or in any other way change it seems to be prevented because it is locked
