I stumped by this issue that affects all my folders and doesn't let me set permissions correctly. I'm logged into my computer as a administrator, and have set myself as the owner of a folder. When I get info on the folder and show the details of "Ownership and Permissions", the "Apply to enclosed items..." button is always greyed out. Does not matter if the folder is locked or unlocked, or if I change a permissions, close the info dialog, and then reopen it. Here's a screenshot posted by a person with the same problem as me who could not solve the problem either. http://www.mac-forums.com/forums/showpost.php?p=465520&postcount=7 Any ideas?
