    Are you user andrewjdizio and logged in as andrewjdizio?

    To find out, click on the :apple: and see for yourself what user is named after Log Out:

    If not, then you can only have access as root user into those folders.

    So the answer to my question

    is, that you're not logged in as andrewjdizio, is that correct?

    Which Macromedia folder btw, the one in Users / andrewjdizio / Library / Application Support?

    If you are logged in as a different user than andrewjdizio, then you should have your own Application Support folder. As I wrote before, you cannot access another users files while not logged in as that user. Only a root user can do that.

    Can you be more specific on what you want to accomplish, maybe there is another way?
