Hi y'all, I can't figure this out, with all the help I could find in this and other forums. What I've done: I copied a bunch of folders from a user folder on an iMac G4 with Tiger installed to Time Capsule, as a backup before a clean install. After putting these back to the iMac I started to delete the files on Time Capsule. All was well, except for this folder called 'Messages' on my Time Capsule. I got this error message: "The operation cannot be completed because you do not have sufficient privileges for some of the items." Now and then (not always!) I see a 'lock' on the folder, sometimes flashing a few times. Unchecking it in Get Info doesn't do anyting - it will reappear again. Trying to diagnose the problem: With Get Info I have 'custom access', and '(unknown)', 'staff' and 'everyone' all have Read & Write priviliges. I can't find a way to change any of these within the Finder. In Terminal with 'ls -lkbaeO' I get the following: total 12 drwxrwxrwx@ 4 sander staff - 264 7 mei 10:02 . drwxrwxrwx@ 4 sander staff - 264 7 mei 10:53 .. -rwxrwxrwx@ 1 sander staff hidden 6148 7 mei 22:31 .DS_Store drwxrwxrwx@ 2 sander staff - 264 7 mei 11:34 Messages In the past few hours I learned about ACLs and a '+' behind the permissions, but i still don't understand the '@'. When using 'chmod -a# 0 sander' the return is that no ACL is present. I'm completely lost at this point. I can't do anything with this folder Can any of you heroes help me? Thanks a million in advance!!
