OS X :: Bunch Of Shared Drives Or Folders Showed In My Finder Under Shared?

Feb 19, 2010

A couple of months ago I was at the head office and connected to the in house Wifi. When I did, a bunch of shared drives or folders showed in my finder under "Shared". I figured no biggie, when I got away from the head office they'd go away. But they didn't. And I can't figure out how to get rid of them.See attached photo.

OS X :: Permissions On Users / Shared?

Jun 14, 2009

How do I make sure that all users (with seperate accounts) on my MacBook OS X have full rights to all folders and files (new and old) for the folder Users/Shared?

We are two persons sharing our MacBook - and we want to share iTunes library, iPhoto-library + a common folder where we store documents like budget planning etc.

We have no problems creating files in the shared folder - but once I have created a file in the shared folder, the other user can only open this in "read-only"-mode. This also happens when I have used the iTunes library or iPhoto-library. After this the other user only has read-only access to the library. It happens with all types of files, e.g. also files created by [URL] pictures created with PaintBrush etc.

Software :: Viewing Permissions On Shared Network?

Dec 11, 2008

I am using a mac, and the rest of the company uses Windows, so I am on my own in terms of figuring out the differences in interface. I know you can right click the folder icon and view the users who have permission to read/write each folder.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: All Files In A Shared Folder Don't Have Permissions

Jun 9, 2012

I have two users on my mac and am having some issues with sharing files.  I created a shared folder and gave the other user read/write permissions.  When I log in as that user, the folder can be accessed, but some of the files in that folder cannot be accessed.  These are all photos, and for the most part I'm dropping them into the shared folder from iPhoto.   

I tried it again by using the Public folder with the same result.  However, there isn't consistency with the actual files that don't have permission.  In other words, the shared folder I created may have a file that does not have permission, but that same file does have permission when I dropped it in the Public folder.  So it is totally random as to which files in the shared folder don't have permission to be accessed.   

I also tried to simply drag the files to the other user.  Same result.

Software :: Change Permissions Whenever Access And Change By Another Account

Jun 6, 2009

I've been changing the permissions on some of my folders and files in my normal user account so they can be accessed and changed by another account. Problem is, I have a program that saves new files into a particular folder. When it saves the new file, the permissions are the default, meaning I have to change them myself in order to make them writeable by the new account. So my first question is - is there a way to make my first user account always save files with a set of permissions that I specify?

My next question is - what should these permissions be? Both of the accounts are admin accounts. Should I therefore set group to be 'admin' and give rwx permissions to the group? Or is it possible to set owner to 'admin'? Can a file be owned by a group? Looking forward to your answers! This UNIX stuff is fun!

Windows On Mac :: Can't Access Shared Folders From Xp?

Oct 30, 2008

I have installed windows xp and windows vista in my mac by VMware fusion (v 2.0 (116369))I used to access my shared folder from xp by the shortcut on the desktop, but suddenly I can't anymore when I click on the Z: drive (\.host) it gives me this message:

efers to a location that is unavailable. It could be on a hard drive on this computer, or on a network. Check to make sure that the disk is properly inserted, or that you are connected to the Internet or your network, and then try again. If it still cannot be located, the information might have been moved to a different location.

and the weird thing is xp connected to the internet! if its connected to the internet thats mean there is a connection between mac and xp. However, everything is working fine in vista!

I did tried:
Restart windows
Restart Mac
Disconnect / Connect network adapter
Switched the adapter to NAT (which is the default) / Bridge / Host-only nothing happen any idea why is this happening or what am i missing?

OS X :: Can't Get It To Find Shared Folders On Macs

Jul 16, 2009

I have a new PC running Windows 7 RC, but I can't get it to find the shared folders on my Macs, nor can my Macs see the shared folders on the PC. Any ideas how to get at least one way working (preferably so that the Macs can see the PC).I'm running 10.5.7, and if I "Connect to Server" and dial in smb:// and the PCs IP address, I get a login window, but it won't let me log in. I have no password on the PC.

Also, I followed the advice in another post here, http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=635271), but it didn't make any difference.

Software :: Mac OSX Cannot See Windows XP Shared Folders?

Oct 31, 2009

have a new IMac (OSX 10.5.8 Leopard) - I am a very new Mac user.

When I first I set up my Mac it immediately recognized the shared folders from my Windows XP machine. I did NOT have to configure networks or anything like that. I plugged in my Mac - the folders appeared in view. No problem.

But yesterday, in trying to repair issues on the Windows machine requiring that I disconnect net connection temporarily, Mac then showed a "lost connection" / disconnection to the shared folder. And from then on, it now cannot see the shared folders, nor can it even successfully ping the Windows pc.

Here's the current status:

Windows machine is hard wired - it CAN ping Mac right now. Mac is (and always has been) on router. It can NOT ping windows.

These machines are about 2 feet away from each other on the same net connection.

Because I have never had to especially configure either machine to see the other- I was afraid to continue trying to negotiate new networks - when there may be some other problem and I am not informed enough about Macs to determine what it is.

What I am really trying to do is move a large amount of files over to use on the Mac - and I would rather have it direct on the network then start saving many gigs to a separate drive then manually installing them.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Show All Shared Folders On Mac?

Feb 5, 2012

I have a Windows PC. It has lots of shared folders. Suppose the name of the PC is "WinPC1". If I use a Windows laptop, I could easily see all shared folders by typing "\WinPC1" in the address bar. 

Now, I am using a Mac. I know I can add specific folders by adding the server as "smb://WinPC1/<individual folder name>", but it cannot map the root "smb://WinPC1". Suppose there are 100 shared folders, then I would have 100 mounted folders on Mac. 

Is there any way to map the root folder, like in Windows PC? I mean I only want a mounted folder for the "smb://WinPC1", not "smb://WinPC1/docs", "smb://WinPC1/musics",... and so on.

OS X :: Read Only Permissions On System And Library Folders

Sep 16, 2009

I'm running 10.5.8 of OSX and have some strange permissions problems. These have been around for a while and whilst they aren't so bad that I can't live with them, they're really annoying and I want to install Snow Leopard but would like to fix this first. When I go to a lot of the folders in the upper hierarchy of the OSX install (the likes of System and Library), I can't modify the contents of any of these folders even as admin.

I have checked the Get Info and seen that it says that "You can only read" under Sharing and Permissions. Surely as admin I should be able to have read and write. I have attached a pic of a screenshot of the Get Info for my System folder. How am I now not a member of the "System" group (I am sure that I haven't had these issues the whole time I have had Leopard...only in the last 6 months) and what is the "Wheel" group?

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Set SSH User-permissions Only To Specific Folders?

Now, if I do log in using sFTP in Transmit client Software with a normal user account who should be able to access via SSH but got only permissions for the "Public" folder on the Server, that user via SSH/sFTP can see/access the root Directory of the server anyway!

OS X :: Can't Change Em Back After Change Permissions

Dec 12, 2009

On the Get Info tab of my Applications folder I changed the permissions so that I have all the read and write rights of the whole folder.

I googled a lot, and most of the solutions says that I need my mac DVD. I am currently in North Africa visiting my parents, and my Disks are back home.

OS X :: Can Change Permissions On Directory?

Jan 27, 2009

I have a large music library that I have amassed over the years, but when I began ripping CDs there was no artwork on the iPod so it didn't matter, but now it would be nice to have it. I purchased a program called coverscout that finds artwork and automatically attaches it to the songs, but I have a problem. Somehow I have made every song read only. The program can't write the artwork to the tracks unless I change each one to rw. I tried to change just the directory, but that doesn't work.

Is there a terminal command to change all files in a directory to read/write? Just for your information all the songs are organized in a folder called music then subfolder of the artist and then a subfolder to that of the albums. It would be great to just change it all and then when I'm done change it back to read only.

OS X :: Change All Folder Permissions Globally?

Mar 22, 2009

] Trying to use ChronoSync to sync Mail between my MacPro (source) and my MacBook (target). For some reason most (not all) of the Folders end up with a red - in them on the MacBook. How do I just set all Folder permissions to Everybody (will this work?) on my MacPro so I can sync and not have a problem (or at least move on to the next one )? There are far too many Folders to go through one at a time. Already spent 30 minutes and finely ended up deleting one by mistake. Is setting to Everyone the way yo do it? Who is Staff and why does my name on the MacPro get changed to Nobody on the MacBook even though it is the same on both?

OS X :: How To Change Default File Permissions

Sep 21, 2009

Using OS X Leopard 10.5.8 on PowerPC G5. We have 15 people sharing files on a network. If we open a file on the network, work on it, and save it, it is readable and writable for everybody. But if we drag the file off the network, work on it on our own hard drive, and save it, and then drag it back to the network, it is read-only for everybody. Documents made on our own hard drives are, by default, read-only for others. This is a real time waster for us!

This means that every time we make a document on our own hard drives, we have to remember to go to the extra trouble to change it's permissions before we put it on our network. Please, is there some way to change the default settings, so that if I, say, save a Word doc on my hard drive and then move it to the network, it is readable and writable by everybody without me having to change it's permissions?

OS X :: Change Default Permissions When Writing To HD?

Dec 15, 2009

I'm running Mac OS X 10.5.8 and I'm having problems with file permissions. When I save a file, the file is readable and writable by the owner, and read only to all others (which I know is normal), but I would like my files to have read and write access to all upon saving them. Is there any way to accomplish this without simply changing the permissions of all the parent directories?

OS X :: Change Permissions For Hundreds Of Files?

I have been using my parents OS X login primarily for my computer life. I have made videos, played games, etc. using one account. But I decided to make my own account, and have had some success transferring files. However, the permissions are still set to the other account. So in iMovie, I can watch my videos but not edit them, since I have read-only permissions. I could easily go into finders "get info" menu and change permissions, but I have hundreds upon hundreds of imovie projects. So, how can I change the permissions of hundreds of files at a time? Editing the folders permission didn't work.

You would think clicking the folder and changing it there would solve this issue...
