    Hi Guys,

    Im running 10.8 and im connected to a couple of smb shares (windows server 2008) but for some reason it won't let me rename or save downloaded files directly to the network. I have to save everything to desktop and then copy over.

    Is this a common mac issue or is there an easier work around?

    Apologies if im repeating another thread.

    Cheers

    My first guess would be a rights/permissions issue.

    This. If you have admin rights on the server then look it over and grant rename access to yourself. If not contact your server admin. It is not an OS X/ Mac issue. If you have rights you can change file names.
