OS X V10.7 Lion :: "Mail Can't Open Because You Don't Have The Necessary Permissions To Change The Folder Where It Saves Information"

Apr 2, 2012

I am no longer able to open Mail. I get the message: "Mail can't open because you don't have the necessary permissions to change the folder where it saves information"  It then goes on to tell me where mail stores information and to go to that folder and use the Get Info window to change the privileges to Read and Write (which they already were). I authenticate, change them to Read and then back to Read and Write, click the lock and try again. Same result. I tried to take a screen shot of that window and got this message: "Your screen shot can't be saved. You don't have permission to save files in the location wherescreen shots are stored." Last night I tried to take a screen shot and got the same message. I repaired permissions in Disk Utility and there were thousands of permissions repaired.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Change Permissions To A Disk / Folder?

Feb 25, 2012

I put an external USB drive into my Macbook Pro, to transfer some files from it to a PC. I wanted to delete a file from a folder that I've just copied, but the file would just pop right back on.I've tried to erase the whole drive, Disk Utility couldn't. Tried to use sudo chmod 755 on the volume, it said that I only have read only previliges.

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 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.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Does The Open Directory Export In Admin App Include LDAP Information

Apr 20, 2012

I'm getting ready to migrate our company server to a new server box.  I'm doing a complete clean install, and migrating specific information over (we had some corruptions from the initial installation Lion Server).  All our users are in LDAP, not the Local directory, and I can't seem to figure out (and don't have the ability to test) if using the Ser Admin app's Archive feature of Open Directory, will include all LDAP information.  My understanding is that if I create an archive and restore to it, then all of my users and there information will be put back like nothing happen, but can't get any clarification on it.

OS X Mountain Lion :: Can't Open / Delete File With Unknown Permissions

Jun 4, 2014

I was using Logic Pro X and the program crashed before I could save my project. There is now a file called "untitled" that appears to be a Logic Project file, however I cannot delete, open, rename, and move it anywhere.  When I try to click and drag the file icon, it doesn't allow me to move it anywhere.    
When right-click on the file, it pops up the window, but there are only a few options available.  I went to "get info" and saw that the file permissions are "unknown".  I've tried repairing disk permissions in the disk utility, however the file is still unaccessible.It's not a large file (only 578K), but it would still like to remove it.

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!

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. The it somehow changed to Name: system, and the Privilege: Read and Write. I didn't know that I was NEVER supposed to do that until I googled the issue. 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. I tried many things, but the more I try, the more I seem to mess up my macbook. I have a macbook white with Mac OS X 10.5.8. Some suggest to go to Terminal, and use chown -R, but as soon as I open Terminal, i get the following:

login: PAM Error (line 400): System error
login: Could not determine audit condition

[Process exited - exit code 1]

I tried many suggestions, namely: "http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=804099&highlight=application+folder+-permissions But I can't use Terminal.......................
