Hey there! Well, we have this 10.4.11 Mac OS X iBook G4, but I have NEVER been able to figure out how to access folders owned by other users!! (Folders with the red "(-)" symbol on them): On 10.5, it's REALLY simple. Just right-click, "Get Info," unlock, and Read & Write! It's really nice. But it doesn't seem to work that way on 10.4. There are so many options after clicking "Get Info," and all I want to do is be able to read and write! I am trying to change the permissions within an administrator's account. Here's what I tried in order to access the other user's folder: Then on the drop-down lists, there are TONS of groups/owners you can choose from and many of them are just gibberish to me. Even after setting everything for Read & Write, I still can't access the folder and its contents! It doesn't make much sense to me. By the way, in case you were wondering, the owner of the non-administrator account whose folders I am trying to access is away at college [and obviously won't reveal their password]. Oh--I also don't want to just copy the entire folder to a public or shared folder or whatever 'cause that would take up tons of space How do I access others' folders? ~~~ Thanks in advance!
