    I just added a new external HD to my server. When accessing the new hd from my desktop computer it seems that I do no have write permissions, only read.

    This despite having gone into the harddrive's "info" and adding my desktop user and giving it read/write permissions.

    What else should I do?

    Could it be because I am still transferring files to the new HD?

    I can be, however make sure the user shortnames on both computers are the same (or put proper short name int othe Connect to dialog box when mapping the disk on the desktop)
