    So when setting up a folder to share such as an iTunes library or iPhoto etc...should the owner be "system" or a particular user?

    i tried owning it and setting group to everyone but the other user accounts kept getting disk is locked or you don't have permissions.

    i put the original folder in the shared folder and set owner to system. then i created aliases in each user account and renamed folder to match original...changed original. now each alias points to the shared folder.

    seems like a lot to go through...Is there an easy process?

    Make any user the owner, add Staff as the group permission and set it to read/write.
