Just got a new Mac Mini and did a migration assistant from my time machine outboard hard drive and all went well. I created a new user admin name and I thought it was the same as my old one but it may be a bit diff. I have some - not all - files I can't get into with "authenticating" with the global password of the admin. Can I turn this off so my entire Macintosh HD is avail to me as the admin? I have done a "get info" on the drive and unlocked/read& write settings i can find, to no avail...
