    I am sharing files with another person over a network (both using Mac Book Pros & Leopard).

    I have a specific Drop Box for that user (We are both assigned read & write).

    When I receive a Folder in the Drop Box & proceed to work with its contents(mostly graphic files) I am unable to save my edits.

    "Could not save as "file-name.psd" because you do not have the necessary access privileges."

    And every time I have to find the folder and add myself to the 'Sharing and Permission" list

    Is there any way to avoid this

    Thanks so much

    Have you tried changing permissions on the file itself?

    I can do that

    but I don't want to do that every time I receive a new file
