OS X :: Security Of AFP - Read Access To Files Of Other Users?

Jun 30, 2009

I would like to be able to open up AFP on the Users folder (it is by default), but here comes my concern. Some of the users will have their sites hosted in their user Sites folders, including some PHP config files, potentially containing mysql login information, etc. Accessing the site through the web is no problem, as Apache w/ PHP will never show content of the PHP code, however AFP will!

MacBook Pro :: Copying Users Files To External Disc - Some Data Can’t Bet Read Or Written

Jun 20, 2014

My Macbook pro wouldn't turn on. I booted to the installation DVD and installed OS X to the external drive. Once the installation was done, I was able to access my laptop without any problem and I retrieved all my files from the USERS Folder. I tried to copy my old files to the external disk, before formatting the system’s internal drive and reinstalling OS X.

However, at every attempt, I’d get “some data can’t bet read or written (Error Code -36)”. I ran a Verify/Repair Disk Permissions and this is what I got:

Applications :: Can Windows Users Read Pages Documents

Apr 12, 2009

I have a proposal due for an english class, and I have to email it to my professor. I know he does not have a Mac, much less Pages, so will he be able to read my document that I created in Pages '09 on his PC? I know he has Office 2007, if that helps. Or do I have to save the file in some special format from within Pages?

OS X :: Granting Multiple Users Access To MS Office Apps?

Feb 1, 2009

I just migrated from an iBook G4 to a brand new MacBook Aluminum. Everything works brilliantly.

I set up an additional user account for the wife. I was able to get the itunes library moved over no problem so we can share it.

But I noticed that the other apps i had installed -- MS office, basically -- weren't showing up on the toolbar (or whatever silly marketing term apple has for it) with the stuff like iTunes and mail, et cetera.

So I was wondering, should I reinstall word, and hope some instructions appear for granting access to multiple users?

is there some really idiotically simple thing i am missing?

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Limit File Access For Different Users In 10.7.4?

Jun 18, 2012

We had everything working perfectly with an earlier version of Lion Server. The update to 10.7.3, or 4, seems to have opened access to all files for all users. Much to our surprise, this wide-open access started without warning.  

- We have an external drive that contains all of the company's archives 

- We had set access for one employee to get to the files he needs, and different access for another employee. Neither saw sharepoints outside of their access settings. 

After an update, each employee can see and log in to all sharepoints. There doesn't seem to be a way to limit access for each employee now. I can set 'read' access for one employee, but it doesn't stop the other employee from accessing that sharepoint/folder.

OS X :: Don't Have Permission But Have Read / Write Access?

Mar 2, 2010

I'm trying to copy over an ISO file (legit one mind you) and OSX is telling me that I cannot move the file because I don't have permissions for it. So I do the usual, get info, check the permissions box, but the funny thing is, I do have Read and Write access but it still pops up that error.

I'm stumped on how to fix this... any ideas?

Here's a screenshot to clarify what I'm talking about.

Applications :: Unknown User Has Read And Write Access To My Policy Key?

Apr 13, 2009

so my iMac running leopard on my college campus was forced to install this application called "Policy Key.app" This program allows me to connect to the internet for my campus, yet, as I dug through the permissions of this app, I see that there is system access, admin access, myself with access, and then...."Unknown" with read and write capabilities. Is this normal? I assume the write part must be to deactivate my internet if I am doing something illegal obviously but I must say I feel uncomfortable knowing that there is the "Unknown" user that can read and write my internet access levels.

Windows On Mac :: Access Data On Partition - Full Read / Write?

Nov 11, 2009

Been a Mac convert now for about a year and haven't really looked back. So far the only thing keeping me from going straight Mac is Quicken. Hopefully this spring Intuit will get the latest Quicken for Mac right, but I digress. I am currently running VM3 to boot into Windows 7 in order to use Quicken, and a few other things from time to time. But this new Modern Warfare 2 game kinda has me thinking I might need to install Windows 7 via Boot Camp in order to give it a try. With that said, if I install W7 via BC I'm I able to access the data on my Mac partition, and with full read/write access? Furthermore, do I understand correctly that VM will then allow me to access my BC install from within it, thereby having the best of both?

Mac Mini :: Best Way To Share Files Between Users?

May 12, 2012

New to the Mac World and trying to set things up for all our users. We have 5 (2adults,3kids) and I'm keen to be able to share some files with other members of my family and would like to know the easiest way in doing this.

A couple of things to note;
- The two adults are the admin's
- Would like to share some photos between users (family photos are usually organized by my wife so I don't get to see them)
- I'd like to let my kids view some of my videos that I've downloaded but not all of them.

OS X Yosemite :: Transferring Files Between Users?

Nov 30, 2014

I just transferred a lot of GoPro clips from my (old, slow) pc using the Migration Assistant. Unfortunately it created a new User Account but I would like to move the clips to my user (and then delete the other user).  

I have derived from various websites that I can share folders and files but ultimately I want to get rid of the other user.

OS X :: Migrating Files Between Macs With Existing Users?

Oct 15, 2010

I've just received my new Mac and I'm wanting to transfer my documents etc. from my old Mac to my new one. I'd rather do it manually than use the migration assistant as I have more control that way.

I've got my two Macs set up side by side and have shared the home directory of my user on the other Mac. Thing is, I've run into a permissions problem. Obviously my old Mac only lets my old user access the files.

Is there any way to migrate the files between users on two Macs manually without resorting to something like "chmod -R 777 ~" to mass change permissions? Ideally, I'd like to just drag the files across and have them automatically change permissions when they're transferred to my new Mac.

OS X :: Recovering File From Deleted Users Files & Account

Mar 17, 2009

So my friend, whos' computer this is, deleted my account and all its files associated with it (when he was mad at me lol) but didn't realize or forgot that there was a text document on there with atleast 30 hrs of work on it and i hadn't managed to back it up on another system yet. so is there any way to recover this file? I have filesalvage running currently and tried diskwarrior but that didn't seem to be the proper tool to use. Any mac freaks got any advice? It'd be really nice NOT to have to repeat 30 hrs of work, but at this rate its already taken 10 hrs or so just trying to recover this file.

OS X :: Remove Hidden Files From Folder For Windows Users

Apr 2, 2009

I have to supply a generated set of files � a couple of dozen logos as .eps files � in a folder containing some other nested folders to a small enterprise that uses PCs for their day to day work.

The people I'm dealing with are not very IT-savvy and if I could, I'd provide a set of these folders and files without the corresponding invisible files that usually have a dot at the beginning of their file-names.

I'll probably zip the whole lot up and email, rapidshare or yousendit it over to them so they can unpack it and get to business without me having to explain what all those files with the dots are, and how to get rid of them.

MacBook Air :: Share Pictures And Music Files Between Users?

Jun 6, 2012

Basically my question is exactly that. I am a new to mac user, and have got a new mac air. Whilst in the store setting up our new mac the people in the shop told us that we could only have 1 icloud account per user, and therefore my wife and i should set up separte user accounts. Great. However, we both want to be able to access all of our photos and our music library. I have been into the sharing folders, but i must be doing somthing wrong, because as my wife turns on iphoto in her user account, she cannot access any of our photos.
