    I used diskwarrior to try and rebuild a faulty drive. It made the drive read only! I have tried all kinds of terminal commands, etc. There is no option to "lock or unlock" from the get info window. No way to edit permissions, etc. There is a file I'm trying to delete from the drive before I use diskwarrior to make a preview partition to backup from. Help!

    You double check permissions? What does Get Info on the volume show?
