    I recently installed an SSD in to my mid 2011 27'' iMac. Following some instructions from a member on this forum.
    I installed the SSD but wanted to use the SSD to run my OS & Apps etc. But keep the HDD for storing files, music, pictures etc.
    I used CCC to do all of this, in the setting before doing the clone I deselected 'User' so it wouldn't copy all this data to the new SSD.
    Once it had all finished and I rebooted on the SSD and then changed the 'User' Home Directory everything has been working fine.

    The issue I get, is when i open some apps e.g. iTunes. It comes up with a message saying 'You do not have enough access privileges for this operation.' and then but then opens the app anyway. When i click 'ok' the message goes away and everything works fine.

    Why is it doing this? How can I stop it? As far as I'm away the user is the administer of this computer.

    Would appreciate your help!

    Maybe mismatched owner/group IDs going on.

    Bring up Terminal and enter: id

    Make note of uid and gid values.

    Now, in the Terminal again:
    ls -l
    cd Music
    ls -l
    Make sure the user id and gid fields match (guessing gid is correct, probably off re: uid). If off:

    sudo find . -type d -exec chown uidfromid:gidfromid {} \;
    sudo find . -type f -exec chown uidfromid:gidfromid {} \;
    Substituting appropriate values for uid and gid.

    Try booting into recovery mode (hold CMD-R after powering up) and run Disk Utility and Repair Disk Permissions. Also while you're there you can run Repair Disk and make sure there are no problems.

    Good luck!
