    Hi,

    I have recently started having a problem in that I don't have administrative write ability on certain folder structures. This problem is predominately in folder structures which are associated with a Sync app that I use called Super Flexible File Synchroniser. I am not able to save new files or edited files into this folder structure from any applications on my Mac i.e. Mail, Parallels, Office, iWork. I have had to save it somewhere else on the hard drive, then drag it into the folder I want it in, then Finder asks me for my password to "Authenticate" this change.
    Is there a way to give myself ownership of an entire folder structure? Has anyone else experienced this problem?

    Thanks,

    Nigel

    Have you taken a look at the Permissions and Sharing tab in the Get Info window?

    Maybe this can also help you, but it's rather long: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2963

    And....?

    So the Finder Get Info window was no help, or do you say you have 10.6.2 because the Apple KB stated it was for 10.5?

    The same principles can be applied for 10.6 too.
