    Hi guys,

    I recently partitioned my hard drive a second time to make way for OS X Lion, but I'm a change-afraid dweeb so wanted to keep Snow Leopard :p I now have my original Macintosh HD running Snow Leopard, a partition running OS X Lion and another partition with a copy of Windows 7 installed on it.

    My question is; how do I change the read/write access on the partition that has OS X Lion installed on it, so I'm able to simply click the disk under 'devices' in the sidebar and drag and drop files to and from it etc.? :confused:

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks! :D

    The Lion OS partition must be "read&write-able" when you boot into Snow Leopard OS.

    Check out this: Finder >> Preference >> Sidebar >> Check "Hard disks" line.
