    The TIme Machine volume does not have that checkbox.
    I think the issue is with your Finder...
    Go to Finder "Go" menu hold the option key and choose Library. Then go to Preferences trash these files:
    Then, restart, or log out and in again.
    (You will have to reset a few finder prefs the way you like them.)

  • Why I can't see "Ignore Permissions on this volume" option on folder info?

    Why I can't see "Ignore Permissions on this volume" option on folder info?
    I'm already logged on with the administrator user and the lock is removed

    Not every drive supports that option and I have never seen it on a folder.

  • WebDAV & File permissions

    I have setup my webserever to all access via WebDAV. I have setup the realms and have added users from opendirectory for authoring permission. All files are owned by root & admin with RWXRWXR_X permissions.
    The authoring does not seem to be working as users can create but cannot amend.
    Do I need to setup ACL's for this to work?

  • ML Server - ignoring permissions?

    Setting up a new 10.8 Server Mac Mini, bound to my campus Active Directory.  File sharing works well -- too well, in fact.  What I'm finding is that ALL valid AD users can connect to a share, even if they don't have permissions.
    See my settings in the screenshots below.  Does anyone have any insights as to why a user, not listed here, and not in the "CDIB-pAdmins" group, can still successfully connect to the share?  Any user with valid credentials on our campus AD can connect to any share on this box, can write files, delete files, create folders, etc.  These users are NOT admins on the server, just regular plain users.
    It is authenticating users, as if I mistype the password access is denied.  If I turn off SMB access, the shares disappear from Windows PCs.  So the options here are being recognized, to some extent.
    I do not like that "Guests" is still listed in the user list, and that it is still marked "Primary Group," even though the guest access box is unchecked.  I cannot remove it from the user/group listing; the remove command is unavailable when guests is highlighted.  Is there a way to remove it altogether, or how do I set a different group as the primary?  Perhaps that is the issue here.
    Also not sure why the local administrator account is listed as "Unknown User."  Don't like that.
    Any insights are appreciated.

    make this simple..
    if you want to delete the contents of all mailboxes, then delete all the folders in your mailstore.
    Or delete individual mailboxes (named with the user's GUID).
    When new mail arrives or the user checks email, their mailbox directory will be recreated.

  • Clone, TM backup, and 'Ignore permissions'

    I'm prepping a disk to be my local backup disk, divided into two volumes -- one to hold a SuperDuper clone and the other (larger) to give Time Machine room to do its thing. My question is fairly simple (I hope):
    Should these volumes have the "Ignore ownership on this volume" checkbox checked or unchecked?
    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Hi Joshz
    yes, I realise that; I was being a bit flippant, I guess. It's certainly true that nobody ever posts to say that they have no problems and everything is working just fine, and I always try to bear that in mind when reading through these forums or those on Version Tracker, MacFixit, etc. The number of Time Machine issues (or, rather the number of people all having the same issues, which is perhaps more relevant) just seemed higher than average, is all.
    But yes, your point is well taken, and although I usually breeze through the usual forum suspects prior to using new (for me, that is) software just to identify common mistakes ad stumbling blocks, it certainly doesn't stop me from using it. And yes, 99% of the time I find that problems that plague others with specific set-ups do not affect me at all.
    Thanks again for your input.

  • Does 10.6 enable a better way to share an iPhoto Library? (Permissions)

    Apple's official approach to sharing an iPhoto Library between multiple users is to move the library to an external drive or a new disk image with permissions disabled:
    http://tqe.quaker.org/2007/TQE159-EN-War.html or use a
    This is not a terribly elegant solution. The disk image will cause backup problems with a lot of software (single bit change causes 30GB backup) and an external drive is a bit silly.
    The problem is the UNIX permissions model in 10.5. They cause many similar problems with sharing things. Every time a user adds or changes a file they get ownership, and other users lose ownership.
    I believe Windows 7 does not have this particular problem.
    Does 10.6 enable a better solution to the sharing and permissions problem than 10.5?

    For iPhoto 09 (version 8.0.2) and later:
    What you mean by 'share'.
    If you want the other user to be able to see the pics, but not add to, change or alter your library, then enable Sharing in your iPhoto (Preferences -> Sharing), leave iPhoto running and use Fast User Switching to open the other account. In that account, enable 'Look For Shared Libraries'. Your Library will appear in the other source pane.
    Any user can drag a pic from the Shared Library to their own in the iPhoto Window.
    Remember iPhoto must be running in both accounts for this to work.
    If you want the other user to have the same access to the library as you: to be able to add, edit, organise, keyword etc.
    Quit iPhoto in both accounts. Move the Library to the Users / Shared Folder
    (You can also use an external HD set to ignore permissions, a Disk Image or even partition your Hard Disk.)
    In each account in turn: Double click on the Library to open it. (You may be asked to repair the Library Permissions.) From that point on, this will be the default library location. Both accounts will have full access to the library, in fact, both accounts will 'own' it.
    However, there is a catch with this system and it is a significant one. iPhoto is not a multi-user app., it does not have the code to negotiate two users simultaneously writing to the database, and trying will cause db corruption. So only one user at a time, and back up, back up back up.
    This works on 10.5 and 10.6

  • USB Hard Drive Permissions Issue

    I just attached a new USB hard drive to my iMac. I would like to make it so only I can have write access to the drive; I want my kids to be able to see the files but not modify or delete.
    I tried by unchecking 'Ignore permissions', and setting permissions where I have read/write, and others have read, but when I switch to one of my kids' accounts, they have full control, and in fact they are shown as owner.
    Thanks for any help you can provide,

    Hello Asopos,
    I have difficulty in reading the screenshots, you can post in the corresponding forum or add some comments.
    Set your Country/Region and Language Preferences
    If my understanding is right, in the USB-hard-drive(NTFS), all folders in the USB drive have the unknown account and the root of the drive don’t have the account.
    It is a SID. Possible that this account was removed and permission has not been removed.
    Please take ownership of the folder and check if we can normally deleted the account.

  • If I transfer files to a new hard drive and "special permissions files" are

    I am installing a new, larger, hard drive in my Powerbook G4. I want to "clone" the old hard drive onto the new one. However, when transferring files to a PowerMacG4, as an intermediary in the process , via Target Disk Mode , I get the message that "certain files with special permissions will not be copied".
    I did check the messages in this forum and found that there is a way around this problem. However, it seems that I would need a clean hard drive to do this and I don't want to reformat my G4 PowerMac in order to use that drive as an intermediary in the process.
    The simple question is then: What will happen if I copy the G4Powerbook files via Firewire to the G4PowerMac drive, ignore the permissions warning, and then transfer that data to the newly installed drive in the Powerbook???? Will there be important systems files missing, or will some of my programs simply not work. Perhaps I could then just reinstall anything that's not working (that required special permissions)?
    This probably sounds like a stupid question to you Mac gurus, but I've never really understood the significance of "permissions".

    You cannot simply copy files from one drive to the other. Also, if you clone to the hard drive in another computer, then you must use a separate partition on that drive. You cannot clone to a drive that already has OS X installed on it.
    The cloning process works as follows:
    How to Clone Using Restore Option of Disk Utility
    1. Open Disk Utility from the Utilities folder of the drive you are cloning.
    2. Select the backup or destination volume from the left side list.
    3. Click on the Erase tab in the DU main window. Set the format type to Mac OS Extended (journaled, if available) and click on the Erase button. This step can be skipped if the destination has already been freshly erased.
    4. Click on the Restore tab in the DU main window.
    5. Select the backup or destination volume from the left side list and drag it to the Destination entry field.
    6. Select the startup or source volume from the left side list and drag it to the Source entry field.
    7. Double-check you got it right, then click on the Restore button.
    8. Select the destination drive on the Desktop and press COMMAND-I to open the Get Info window. At the bottom in the Ownership and Permissions section be sure the box labeled "Ignore Permissions on this Volume" is unchecked. Verify the settings for Ownership and Permissions as follows: Owner=system with read/write; Group=admin with read/write; Other with read-only. If they are not correct then reset them.
    For added precaution you can boot into safe mode before doing the clone.

  • Insufficient perms/long filename errors

    I formatted a WD external HDD to have an HFS+(for backup using SuperDuper) and 2 FAT partitions. I had been using the hard drive without any errors, and did a reformat of OS X recently. Then, I wiped the three partitions on external HDD. When trying to copy files that I downloaded a day or two ago (after OS X reformat), from OS X's downloads folder to the HFS partition, it shows an error that some files have long filenames and cannot be copied. Some other files show error of insufficient permission.
    Can it be fixed?

    I was trying to copy files downloaded to my Macbook HD to an non-journaled HFS+ partition and it worked. However, when I tried to copy the same files from the external HDD to a different folder on Macbook HD, it shows an error about insufficient permissions.
    For the partition in external drive, I've checked "ignore permissions" and my username shows up under the list of owners. I also did a repair/repair permissions from Disk utility in the OS X install DVD. The DVD and Macbook contains the same OS X version (10.5.5), so I don't think an out-of-date Disk Utility messed up things.
    I'd run the external HDD and Macbook with 10.5.5, without any problems before reinstalling OS X and problems cropped up.

  • Permissions are badly messed up on any disk Time Machine has used to backup

    *The Short Version:*
    After using an external disk as a Time Machine target, disk permissions are forever and always utterly ignored which causes huge problems when said disk is supposed to share publicly and privately accessible files/folders over the local network.
    Said disk is no longer used for Time Machine, but permissions still refuse to work after the "Ignore ownership..." option is disabled, ACL's are cleared, and more.
    *The Long Version:*
    So, I'm trying to share some folders off of an external disk I temporarily used for a week as a Time Machine backup disk.
    Because I have both "public", and private documents on the disk, I need to use disk permissions, to disallow access to some folders. Enabling file sharing works great, except any and every user get full read/write access to everything.
    I have another external aswell, which is identical, just it's never been used as a Time Machine target volume, and permissions are obeyed perfectly.
    Originally I think the Ignore ownership option was enabled, but the checkbox wasn't showing up on the Get Info panel. After some messing around, I realized it's not displayed if there's a folder called "Backups.backupdb" on the root of the disk.
    Now, a few hours later, after renaming "Backups.backupdb" to "Backups.backupdb_OLD", clearing ACL permissions from the disk, unmounting, mounting, restarting file sharing, and lots more, IT STILL IGNORES ANY AND ALL PERMISSIONS?!
    Is there some kinda super secret disk flag option or something I'm missing which causes OSX to still ignore permissions no matter what?
    I hope someone here knows what's going on, 2 hours of Googling hasn't helped at all.

    I seem to have gotten file sharing to obey the permissions, to some degree. It included removing the share from system preferences, using TinkerTool System to change the permissions to anything (didn't seem to work via normal Finder, as I'd already tried that), and then adding the volume back in sharing preferences.
    This doesn't really seem very reliable tho, so I'm hoping someone can come with a technical reason/solution for this.

  • Network Volume Permissions Issue

    I am having a couple of issues with my "Data" external HD volume that I've setup as a poor-man's NAS (attached via USB to my AirPort Extreme)..
    1. Lately I have been experimenting with the various media players for OS X and seeing which one works best for me (VLC, Perian + QT, and Plex). So I selected a random *.m2ts file (from a BD-rip) and then "Cmd + I" to "Get Info" for that movie. In the "Open With" drop-down menu I selected "Plex" (as Plex seems to do a better job streaming than VLC for this one particular mpeg stream file), and when I tried to change it to Plex, it reported that I could not change all files to open with such a program (which is what I was used to being able to do). I thought that was weird as I've always been able to "Change All" in the past. See screenshots for some visual cues.
    As you can see below, it says "you have custom access," and I don't even have an option to "Ignore permissions on this volume"
    I try to add a new user/owner, and I can't. Says "that name is not valid"
    Then out of curiosity i tried to see if the subfolders in that volume are similarly jacked. yes they are!
    I also noticed that I have read-only access, even if I am actually the "(unknown)" user that suppossedly has read/write abilities. Not sure if that is me or not. Now when I disconnect the "Data" volume from my Time Capsule and plug it in via USB to my MacBook, all is fine and dandy -- i can read/write, change permissions to whatever, ignore permissions on that volume, change default apps, etc.
    It is almost like OS X doesn't realize that I an the owner of that external drive or something, so it tries to lock me out.
    I tried some random "chown" terminal commands like the following, which i found browsing macrumors or something. Note that when I tried the second phrase, it said "chown: /Volumes/Data: Operation not permitted" Dang. So i think that this particular terminal sequence (which seems to have solved everyone else's problems in the past, will certainly not work for me). I even tried telling it that I am the "root" user, but I don't remember the command.
    sudo chflags 0 /Volumes/Data
    sudo chown 0:80 /Volumes/Data
    sudo chmod 775 /Volumes/Data
    sudo chmod -N /Volumes/Data
    Here is some Terminal info, if it helps:
    sddacraig13:~ Anthony$ ls -la /Volumes
    total 8

    Any issues you guys can think of? I did clean install OS X AFTER I had originally created the USB volume "Data," but my username and everything should still be the same... I think maybe my computer name may have changed (necessary for a school thingy).
    Help! I'd like to be able to write to the volume while it as attached to the network...

    This fixes just the symptom.
    The cause is driving me nuts.
    Whenever there is a little network problem (out of hands because of ISP)...
    I looses my Volumes, which is still somewhat acceptable.
    What is not acceptable is, that spotlight and whatever apps mean to write something onto my shares and whenever they are not available new folders are added under /Volumes/ShareName and so fourth.
    I am tired of fixing it manually.
    Because when I reconnect to my shares they'd be added as /Volume/ShareName-1 then as ShareName has been created by Mac OS X natively for some Reason.
    In the beginning I thought my Backupsoftware does that, or Amok Exif Sorter or whatever else Application... but shouldn't be the Standardprocedure for creating and writing data that if the folder is not found to interrupt with an exception/error or whatever.
    I find it not a very amusing practise to clean up the Volumes Folder every now and then for it gets spammed with rogue mountpoints that are in reality just directories locally for the real share was missing at the time something tried to write to there...
    Whenever I miss out that that happened data gets corrupted and I have to clean up the data massup by finding the differences amongst and getting the newest Version etc...
    I've been reading a lot of people having this problem and everywhere is described how to clean up the mass but nowhere how or when to fix the issue that it starts with, I mean stopping Mac OS X to create duplicates on its own not being asked to do so....

  • The correct Ownership & Permissions on external firewire disks?

    I was excited by a resolution to the same problem I have (I don't know what Ownership & Permissions I should have on my external -- bootable -- HD). Mistakenly I used Leopard to set them up rather than Mac OSX 10.4.11. Now I no longer had access to the HD nor would it show up on the desktop on Mac OSX 10.4.11 although the Disk Utitlity showed that it existed. I finally erased and cloned the disk but don't know what Permissions I should set it at. "Niel" supposedly answered this problem but his answer was "click here and follow the instructions" which does not show up on the forum. I can't find any other discussion of my specific problem nor an explanation of various permissions sets for Hard Disks internal nor external. If someone could help me I would be grateful. I am in Japan far from any Apple Stores or shops. Thank you.

    For a bootable drive or system drive:
    owner=system w/read-write privileges
    group=admin w/read-write privileges
    other=read-only privileges
    The box labeled "Ignore permissions on this volume" should be unchecked.
    To set the ownership and permissions select the drive and press COMMAND-I to open the Get Info window. Click on the small triangle where you see the label: Ownership and Permissions.

  • Cd won't mount, permissions, backup data

    I have had to erase my OS 10.3.9 and start all over again with 10.3.5 [and ALL the updates and ALL the new software I've added](all starting when I couldn't load 10.4.3). I made a backup disk using Disk Utility of My Pictures, bookmark.plist, and some Pages documents. The CD was mountable under the old OS. Now after reloading everything and hopefully all the same updates, it wont mount. In Disk Utility I can verify the disk but permission buttons are not active. Mac Help explains that I can loose permission when deleting an OS, and can worked around by ignoring permissions. But to ignore permissions, I need to be able to select it in Finder. Well just how in the flippin world am I supposed to select it in Finder when it wont mount? Why would a backup process be so difficult to use for its intended purpose; TO RELOAD DATA?

    To clarify further, the permissions on the CD are disabled [?]. The CD shows up in Disk Utility in grey print but can be highlited. It is inferior to, or 'inside' a disk image [?] called Session 1, which is under the Pioneer drive image. If I highlite the volume underneath this Session 1, (the grey text 'backupfile') in Disk Utility and 'GetInfo' this is what I see:
    Name : backupfile
    Type : Volume
    Disk Identifier : disk1s1s2
    Mount Point : Not mounted
    File System : Mac OS Extended
    Connection Bus : ATAPI
    IO Content : Apple_HFS
    Device Tree : uata/@0:2
    Writable : No
    Capacity : 647.4 MB (678,871,040 Bytes)
    Permissions Enabled : No
    Can Turn Permissions Off : Yes
    Can Be Formatted : Yes
    Bootable : Yes
    Supports Journaling : Yes
    Journaled : No
    Disk Number : 1
    Partition Number : 2
    The Mount button at the top of Disk Utility activates when I highlight the volume but clicking it just makes the drive spin and nothing happens.
    Still looking for a way to get my data back if anyone can help.

  • Ownership and Permissions situation

    I just upgraded to a new PowerMac G5 machine after being plagued by problems with my ealier G5. I have been unable to use Backup to restore my files, and I have a copy of my users folder on another hard drive.
    The problem is that most of the folders inside my users folder say that I have insufficient permissions to access the data. Is there another way I can get to this data, or a way in which I can log into my computer to let it know I am the owner of these files?

    Welcome to Apple Discussions!!
    I have a copy of my users folder on another hard drive.You can set the system to ignore permissions on this drive, at least while you copy your files. This would be quicker than using your admin account to change ownership on all the files.
    Select the volume (hard disk) and then choose "Get Info" from Finder's File menu, or use the Command-I shortcut. At the bottom of the Info pane you will see a checkbox labelled "Ignore ownership on this volume". Check that and you will be able to access anything on the disk. You may need to log out and back in, although I don't think this should be necessary.
