    My friend gave me his 16GB stick with some important excel files. They are in a password protected rar file on the stick.
    No big deal, but I changed some things on the excel files and I wanna copy them back on the stick but I dont have permission to do it. Its Read-Only and its also NTFS (friend uses windows 7)

    Any way to change the permission on the stick so I can write on it?

    Thanks

    Mac OS X doesn't have native read/write support for NTFS. Installing MacFUSE and NTFS-3G will add this functionality.

    I don't mean to be an ass, but you could probably have found the answer to this question with a brief search. It's asked once every couple of weeks.
