I've got an issue with my external drive (Lacie in the list below):
Mollbook:Volumes ben$ ls -abehklO /Volumes
8 root admin hidden 272B 11 Jul 20:06 .
0: group:everyone deny add_file,add_subdirectory,directory_inherit,only_i nherit
drwxrwxr-t 30 root admin - 1.1K 11 Jul 18:53 ..
drwxr-xr-x 1 ben staff - 12K 8 Jul 11:18 BOOTCAMP
drwxrwxr-t 28 root admin - 1.0K 11 Jul 18:21 Backup
drwxr-xr-x 14 ben staff - 544B 1 May 17:20 Lacie
drwxrwxr-x 14 ben staff - 544B 1 May 17:20 Mirror
drwxrwxr-t 29 root admin - 1.0K 5 Jul 11:39 Tempbackup
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root admin - 1B 11 Jul 18:53 Tiddler -> /
The issue is some odd permissions on my Aperture library (and potentially other areas). Apparently I have custom access:
_unknown - Read & Write
staff - Read only
everyone - Read only
There's nothing on this disk that needs to retain any special permissions as far as I know. It's a data drive, not bootable, no system files etc.
I've already done chmod 755 "Lacie", but that hasn't helped.
Is there something sensible I can do to get the ownership back to where it should be?
Note to mods
- I've duped this from (http://forums.macnn.com/90/mac-os-x/...missions-need/
), as it's more clearly defining my problem rather than piggy backing off the original, less specific thread. I've added notes to that thread to say that I've created this one.
