    I have just tried to add something to a folder on a drive, it shows a message of "folder cannot be modified"? I did not do anything to that drive or folder, all other 3 drives have no issue like this, it is not my main drive,it is an external. Drive has a lot of space left on it. What might have changed? I can drag and drop from folder, but not to it.
    I am using a G5 PPC, Dual 2.0, Leopard 10.5.2.

    How is the external formatted?

    If it's NTFS then you can read it but not write to it.

    it is Mac OS Extended (Journaled), as all the other drives.
    Have been using it for over a year, dragging and dropping what ever I needed. This is totally new occurrence.
