    Hi,

    I'm having issues with some folders been read only...

    I have formated the external drives, copied back the folders but I seems the folders are the problem. I've also done disk repair and disk verified. But when I try to change my privileges on the affected folders it says I don't have permission. Even if I try to add another user it still says no permission.

    From what I've read - should the 'staff' drives be 'admin' if so, then my itunes drive (10TB) maybe needs changing to 'admin'???

    Thanks in advance
