    Hi All,

    Hoping someone can help me as I'm really frustrated at the moment :(! I'm running a Mac Pro w/ Snow Leopard at my office and we've recently got a NAS box (Icy Box NAS 4220-B) to hold our media files (Lots of uncompressed SD/HD video)...

    I copied across all our video in their respective files and at present the NAS is shared via Samba to my Mac. However I'm getting a lot of permissions errors... I can't delete folders or add new files to certain folders. Somebody advised me NFS was a better way to share as I could reset or change these permissions but I'm having a real difficulty mounting the device via NFS. It's enabled on the device and I've mapped it as a share in disk utility but no joy mounting the drive in the finder this way!?

    I've attached some screens of my NFS set-up... If anyone could help me reset the permissions on the device or mount via NFS I'd be grateful!
