Hello... first post on this forum. Really in a bind here, so I hope someone has some thoughts on this one! After a snafu using disk utility to repair file permissions, I now have this issue wherein new files I create do not show up as owned by me. Instead, they are owned by system. Without modification of some settings, I cannot modify these files at all... which is just a TAD of an inconvenience when trying to do any work at all. Here's how the permissions show up: system: read & write wheel: read only everyone: read only When they SHOULD be: (Me): read & write staff: read only everyone: read only I can modify and save one of these newly-created problematic files only if I do the following in the "Get Info" box: 1. Add myself as a user with permissions on the file, 2. Set those permissions to read & write, and 3. Change the ownership of the file (via that little gear icon at the very bottom) to me. If I don't do all of that, it won't let me save it. If I do it all, it will. But here's where it gets strange again: As soon as I've saved the modified file, those permissions revert. So even though I still have the file open and have JUST saved it, I cannot modify it and save it again. If I try, it tells me I don't have permissions. And if I look at the permissions again, they've reverted and I am no longer even a user on the file. So they're locked somehow, and changes don't "take." Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!
