    I spoke too soon. The little red circle with the line in it disappeared from the "work" folder but I still got the "denied access" warning. Will restart and see if that does anything.

    in what situation do you get that error?
  • Ezzyme Level 1 (125 points)
    Whenever I click on the " work" folder. It says, "the folder " work" could not be opened because your do not have sufficient access privileges" Note, there is a space before the word "work", like " work". I named it that way so that it would show up at the top of the list.

    this is very strange. that terminal command should have fixed that.

    enter the following command in terminal and post back the results

    *ls -ladeO /\ Working Files/\ Work*
  • joshz Level 4 (3,280 points)
    *ls -ladeO /\ Working Files/\ Work*

    ls -ladeO /\ Working\ Files/\ Work

    There's a space after "Working".

    Open the "Get Info" for the file in question and change the permissions at the bottom of the window that opens up.
  • joshz Level 4 (3,280 points)
    Go back to dragging it in.
    Type:
    ls -ladeO

    Make sure there is a space after the O, then drag the folder " Work" into the window, and press enter.

    Good luck!

    Ok, your all wrong. I still have apple care although I wouldn't bother them if I didn't need to. I "control clicked" on the file, chose "get info", clicked on the lock at the bottom right corner of the info window, typed in my administrative password when asked, then changed all the permissions to "read / write" and closed it. Miracle of miracles, access. Of course this was at the direction of the Apple level 2 tech but that took about 2 minutes. Anyway, for all you out there without Apple Care, that's how you do it.

    Yeah, I imagine he had a pretty easy time of it when you told him where the files were located and how they got there. I looked back at your first couple of posts, and realized that more questions were in order. Sometimes the phone is easier than delayed partial questions and answers.

    In your last post you said you control clicked on the file. Was it really only one file or did you mean the folder?

    2. Copy the blue text in, and press enter. chmod -R -N ~

    That command removes all ACL entries from your home folder. The next commands put them back where they should be.
    3. (Press enter after copying and pasting this command in). chmod +a "everyone deny delete" ~/ ~/Desktop ~/Documents ~/Downloads ~/Library ~/Movies ~/Music ~/Pictures ~/Public ~/Sites

    After running line#2 above.
    I get the following from terminal:

    chmod: Failed to clear ACL on file Commands: Invalid argument
    chmod: Failed to clear ACL on file Notification: Invalid argument

    I am having permission errors when trying to transfer from Mac to Mac over the network using Filesharing.
    I mount the other computer, but when I try to copy I get:

    "You may need to enter the name and password for an adminstrator on this computer to change the item named "xxxxxx""
    (but I am signed in with adminstrator accounts)...I click continue then get:
    "The item "xxxxxx" contains one or more items you do not have permission to read. Do you want to copy the items you are allowed to read?" ....I click continue then get:
    "The operation cannot be completed because you do not have sufficient privileges for some of the items"

    thanks

    Yep, that's what I told you to do.
