View Full Version : Different Finder views for Read-Only Volumes

May 21, 2012, 10:41 AM
I've always experienced read-only volumes, whether it's flash drives, or hard drives, to have a different Finder view when it is opened. I know this is normal behaviour, but navigating through a read-only volume is tedious, as every folder opened opens another window (instead of just going in the window itself). Is there a way to have read-only volumes be opened with the same Finder window as regular volumes?
