I purchased a 1 TB portable WD Essentials drive that I plan on using for backup. I tried to copy my old Time Machine backup folder over to the new drive but was getting messages about ownership. I had a bright idea to apply ownership (Me) to all the items held in the folder about 135 GB worth thinking this would happen in a reasonable amount of time. 2 hours later it's still chugging along. At this point I'm thinking why not just start a new Time Machine folder? However I don't see a way to stop this System Process of applying ownership to a large number of files. The info box is open, and the message is "applying privileges to Mac 1" (my ext drive). I really don't want to do anything drastic like pulling the plug on the drive. But is there an easy way to safely stop this process? Thanks!
