I have a new MacBook air that I set up using Time Machine – fast and simple according to the blurb BUT now every time I want to open or move a file, I have to put my password in. Also, when moving folders, Finder copies them.

The only solution seems to be to change permissions individually for each file, but I have about 5,000... Any ideas?

I've already repaired permissions and updated permissions on master folders.

MacBook Air, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), iTunes 11.01
