How do i change my sharing and permissions from read only to write and read?

I cannot put files in my flash drive for some reason. How do I change this setting? My flash drive format is Windows NT File System (NTFS).

You can't do that because it's formatted as NTFS. Reformat to FAT32, and you will be good to go.

  • No individual file larger than 4GB.
NTFSHFS

Like those found at Panama Channel I suppose? It only takes three to 17 million cycles I suppose to sometimes get a response here. Am I glad I'm still in my pre-teens. But that will be over soon as I enter my puberty in the coming decade or so. That's when I start to get crazy I suppose, at least my younger sister told me so. Hmm, must be looking for secondary schools now I suppose.


In all honesty, I'm older than I not look, but that is matter of another one of those discussions surrounding virii or maybe those about what is better, bread or sliced cheese.
