Hello,

 

If I look at the other user's folders under their home in the finder, they are all inaccessible as my administrator's account does not have permissions to view them. Is there a way for my administrator's account to view these folders?  I understand that I could add myself to all the items necessary for backing up, but this is no good for new files as I would have to add myself to each file before the backup ran.

 

If the admin account can not access other users folders, is there an rsync command that ignores the permissions in order to copy rhe files to an external hard drive?

 

Many thanks.
