Software :: File Sharing - No Appropriate Access Privileges?

May 22, 2009

I'm having trouble accessing files and moving folders on a shared drive. When I try to open or move a file, it says "The document "X" could not be opened. You do not have appropriate access privileges. To view or change access privileges, select the item in Finder and choose File > Get Info." and when I try to move a folder, it says "This folder cannot be moved as you do not have access to some or all of the items." The IT (who is not trained to deal with macs) says I have full permissions for our shared drive and that the problem is with my computer. So I followed the instructions in the warning box.

However, in the Get Info for the file, it says under Sharing & Permissions "You can read and write". In my System Preferences, both my user accounts have the administrator access box checked. In the Help section, it gives instructions along the lines of "in the Sharing & Permissions section, click the lock next to your name to change permissions" and also "in the action (gear) section, select the option for permissions that you want". Trouble is, there's no name and no lock in my Sharing & Permissions box. There's also no 'action (gear)' option anywhere. When I click on the triangle next to Sharing & Permissions, it literally just says 'You can read and write'. There's no other option or information.

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 :: Appropriate Access Privileges For Downloads

Jun 7, 2009

I am the administrator on this computer, and every time I try downloading something from Software Updates it tells me I don't have appropriate access privileges. It didn't used to happen, and I've gotten by fine this year because I haven't had to download anything urgently. Now, I really need to download Mac OS X Update Combined 10.5.7, but it says "you do not have appropriate access privileges".

Also, although it tells me that I can try again by finding the installer package in the finder, the package does not exist on my computer. I've gone to system preferences, the only user checked to administer is me, and I don't see any other option that could fix the problem..

Nov 30, 2008

I have just bought a new macbook and am very pleased with it. I am having a problem with iTunes. I have two accounts on my computer (mine and the wifes). I have an iTunes folder in my public folder which is accessed by both accounts. My wife has subscribed to some podcasts which have been placed in the folder and are visible to her account, and download onto her iphone. When I subscribe to a podcast on my account it attempts to download and then states: 'You do not have enough access privileges for this operation.' I have amended the access privileges for the folder to shared and read / write for both accounts.

OS X :: Downloads Folder Could Not Be Opened - No Access Privileges

Dec 27, 2008

Error message: "The folder 'Downloads' could not be opened because you do not have sufficient access privileges." I get this error message both on my computer and in time machine. I sent in my comp to apple they replaced the hard drive to my surprise; I created a brand new user account without reloading any info off time machine. Then once that account was created I opened the migration assistant utility and restored certain information off of time machine. I then deleted the 'new' account. Now I'm on the restored account and I do not have access to particular folders on the macintosh hd. in time machine I am blocked from accessing them as well. I googled a lot and some say its a MAC address, but I'm not so sure that's the case for my particular situation. Lot of important files are locked up that I need to access asap!

OS X :: Insufficient Access Privileges To Rename Items?

Feb 13, 2009

I just recently bought a new macbook, and I transferred all of my files from Windows XP onto the new computer. Whenever I try to change the names of files that I transferred, it says that I have insufficient access privileges. I can rename files that I created on this Mac, but not the old files. I did the disk repair, and it didn't work. I also make sure that I had privileges for that particular folder.This is my first mac, so I don't really know what I am doing, but I did do the things that would usually be done to repair privileges.

I am running snow leopard 10.6.2 on a imac G% and we work on a network from a PC external hard drive. We are suddenly having problems with folders, whereby if a new folder is made from the mac (on the external hard drive) then no one but that mac that made the folder has access privileges.

The thing is, that the file can be put on the micro sd cause a few hours ago it was in there, i put it on the mac, till I use the micro sd for something else, then now when i want to put it back it does that...

OS X Technologies :: Add Account Privileges To A Newly Created File?

Jun 11, 2012

I have multipe accounts on my Mac.  Two of them need to share certain files, but not with everyone else so I can't use the Shared folder.  When I create a new text file with AppleScript it has default ownership to the account that created it, but I need to give read & write privilages to it to the other account as well.  I can do this manually, but there are lots of files sometimes.  One trick I've found is to reset privilages from the next higher folder.  This saves time, but sometimes I forget.  Also when I do this it causes Time Machine to think all the files in that folder have been updated.  If the folder is large it may cause Time Machine to purge a old backup version.  What I'd like to do is find some AppleScript code I can use to add user "A" with read & write access to the permissions of a new file at the time my AppleScript creates that file.

Hardware :: 16Gb Flash Drives Keep Saying "No Access Privileges"

Aug 12, 2009

I have purchased two (from different places) 16Gb Flash drives. Ok they are "no name" but never had probs with the 4GB and 8Gb before like this. When I get to about 4GB of copied items they stop, saying I have "no user access priveledges. Then they won't empty.. or allow anything to trrash. The won't eject, I have to pull them out.. they then will empty. I can then start again.. same thing! I have tried Disk Utility, Formatting, Partitioning, Journaled and non Journald. Each time I get the same pattern. I have tried copying 4gb and more at one time and 1, 2, 3GB at a time. I have tried on two different iMacs 24in Intel and a 20in iMac G5 with the exact same results. Obviously it is the sticks but is there a way round it?
