$chown .group filename
Secondly, the directory darren should probably be owned by you. You want
to change the group to whatever group you changed the other
directories to. You need root access to change the owner of
$chown user filename
and see if the permissions are correct for "." and ".." Also make sure
the directory is owned by darren and it has the correct group.
Hope this was a little helpful.
