    Hi

    Desparately need help. Very illiterate.

    I went into Get Info and changed my own admin setting in Sharing and Permissions to Write Only. So now when I click on my hard drive, I am told I don't have access!!! How do I revert to the original settings?

    I want to see my hard drive.

    Please help!!!!

    If you have the OSX install discs you can boot from it and run the Disk Utilities program, which has a Repair Permissions option that should hopefully help get things back to normal. See our guide for Repairing Permissions for more details.
