    Hello,

    I have an external backup disk and I can't change the read/write permissions. It was working great with SL but now I have read privileges only. Any idea?

    [​IMG]

    - The DS user is the admin and is located in the "staff" group.
    - I plugged in another external drive and it is working good, the "staff" group has read/write privileges allowed.
    - All files in this drive appear as "Locked" when opened.

    PS.: I already tried opening the lock, but the system does not allow me to change anything.

    Thanks!

    Yeah! And....It worked!!! :eek::eek::eek:

    How would you explain that? Is it a Lion issue or just and old issue? Never had that before.

    Happens to me once in a while. Old issue.

    A good friend of mine taught me that a lot of issues are cured with a reboot.

    Good to hear it worked.
