OS X :: Error In Finder "Don't Have Sufficient Permissions"

Feb 19, 2009

I'm having issues with my USB pen. I can't copy files over, instead getting a "you do not have sufficient permissions" error in the Finder. In the console I'm getting this:

OS X Mavericks :: Finder Beach Balling - Failed Setting Front Application To Finder - Error?

Jun 3, 2014

I upgraded my MacBook Pro quad core 2.5 from Lion to Mavericks. Since then I get a LOT of beachballs when I'm using Finder. I repaired permissions, deleted com.apple.finder.plist (twice) and finally reinstalled Mavericks over the first one. Still painfully slow and lots of beachballs.

Software :: Finder Quits After Repairing Permissions?

Jun 10, 2008

I recently ran Disk Utility on my MacBook (OS 10.4.11), and it said the node structure was invalid. The next day, I repaired the disk with DiskWarrior (I didn't have an OS X disk around, so I couldn't use Disk Utility).

However! Before I tried using DiskWarrior, I repaired permissions in Disk Utility, figuring that it was good routine maintenance. Disk Utility changed some permissions, and ever since, the Finder immediately quits and restarts when I navigate to certain folders. The "bad folders" seem to vary with no apparent cause: for a while it only cared about a certain folder inside my home folder, but now it's started to quit whenever I navigate to my home folder (which means I can't use Command-N, though I can make new windows by clicking on the hard drive's desktop icon). Occasionally it lets me go to my home folder for no apparent reason, and sometimes I can get to otherwise "bad" folders by clicking on my shortcuts on the leftmost panel of the finder window (though not always). In short, it's not very consistent, and changes over time. It's still doing this even after repairing the disk, zapping PRAM, and trying fsck (which said the disk was OK). Both Disk Utility and DiskWarrior think my permissions are fine.

Applications :: Finder Running Very Slowly - How To Repair Permissions

Mar 14, 2009

I am using an Intel based imac 2.8GHz, has 4GB memory, OS 10.5.6. It has 16GB Hard disk free.

After finder has been up for 20 seconds or so the response time between clicks gets really slow (1 or 2 minutes). The problem repeats every time Finder is restarted. When I look at the Activity monitor the Finder shows that it is taking up 840MB of RAM and most of the CPU.

Software :: Cannot Open ITunes Or Finder - No Written Permissions

May 1, 2010

When ever I click on the itunes or finder icons, I get this error message: "The itunes Library .itl file is locked, on a locked disk, or you do not have written permission for this file". I read somewhere that for itunes it may have gotten stuck as a read only file and you can fix this by going to my documents --> music --> itunes --> properties --> unselect "read only". But when I click on "my documents" it tells me that I have to open it with "finder", and "finder" gives me the same error message as itunes.

MacBook Air :: Accidentally Set Finder Sharing And Permissions For Everyone To No Access

May 4, 2012

I have a relatively new MacBook Air.  In reviewing the sharing and permissions settings for the Macintosh HD and for user known as "everyone", I changed the setting from "ready only" to "no access" thinking that this would block access from other users (like other family members).  Well, it did, but I'm part of "everyone" and now have no access to my Air.   

I have tried rebooting and accessing Safe Mode (Command/Shift/V) and I can see the status information as the machine tries to lauch in Safe Mode, but then the screen turns white leaving me with no interface through which I can launch Finder and correct my stupid mistake.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Sharing And Permissions In Finder - No Privileges Info

Jun 14, 2012

I am using a Mac Mini (mid-2011) running Lion Server 10.7.4.I have noticed lately that when I check files the Sharing & Permissions portion using Get Info on my files I find that there are two lines for each user on my computer.The first set of lines says Read & Write which I actually selected. The second set of lines says Custom. When I check I have the list Read & Write, Read, Custom. When I try to change Custom I cam select new option No Privileges Info. For the other users I am able to delete the extra line once I select No Privileges Info.

However even though I have more than one line I cannot delete the extra line for the main user. I will try and delete the extra line for the main user logged in as someone else that has what I have defined as admin privileges (reason I have more than one user).This really concerns me because this issue is causing problems with me adding or removing files as needed in the terminal. When I try I get this funky error:
"Dubious permissions on file (skipping): filename with duplicate entries for a user."
This is happening more and more even though I am not changing the file permissions that I am aware of.

OS X :: External Drive Locked - Permissions Error

Feb 28, 2009

I have a external drive that is locked by a permissions error. I need to reset the permissions on this drive. I know it can be done through command line, but I dont know code. Disk Utility only repairs permissions on system files and since there is no system I am hoping there is third party software.

OS X :: Error - Don't Have Permissions For Folder - Make Textedit To Write That File

Oct 1, 2010

I have a config file, /etc/my.cnf that has permissions set via the finder gui to have read/write for anyone that's an "admin". My user is an admin (turns out I'm the only user as well), but when I open this file (it's plain text) in text edit it gives me an error on save saying that I don't have permissions for the folder that it's in. I can, however, use nano via the terminal and modify the file without any issues. I don't want to set read/write permissions on /etc to everyone, so how do I make it so TextEdit (and thus other programs having the same problem) can write to that file?

IMac (Intel) :: Moving Mail From Broken MBP To New - Permissions Error Persists

Jun 28, 2014

My Macbook Pro from 2007 won't boot anymore, turns out to have NVIDIA GPU problem. It ran on Snow Leopard, but I can't enter it anymore to upgrade. I'm trying to move mail to my new Imac and have a TM backup on the desktop of it. I followed this [URL]..... Mail folder and plist are now copied in the same locations, new original Mail folder is parked on desktop because I didn't dare 'fuse' the two, let alone replace it with my old mail folder.

When opening the Mail app. I get the permissions message that I should set 'read and write' permissions on the Mail folder, but it says the info Mail wants to use is in the mail folder in the Backup folder, although I provided it with a copy in its own Library. The permissions via show info were ok, but I redid them and still the error keeps popping up. 


Why won't it use the folder from its own library?

Could this be because my previous version is too old?

I can't enter my mail or mail addresses, years of data there..

OS X :: Finder Cannot Complete Operation (Error Code -36)

May 2, 2010

So a few weeks ago, I copied my entire music library (97.5gb) onto my external hard drive (Mac OS X Extended, Journaled) to save space on my boot drive. Since then, I've been able to update my iPod, receiving the message "Attempting to copy to the disk <iPod name> failed. The disk could not be read from or written to".

I formatted my iPod to see if that was the problem, but it still won't copy. So, in order to right that situation, I tried to copy all my music back to my regular HD, but now am receiving the Finder Error code -36 "The Finder cannot complete the operation because some of the data in (name of file) could not be read or written." I can't format the external drive either because then I would lose all of my music.
