BatCHMOD looks like it could help but there must be a way of getting around this without an add-on?
It must be something simple that I'm missing.
--Did you "Apply to enclosed items"? --
It doesn't give me this option under the gear icon. Perhaps because there's nothing to apply as it doesn't allow me to change the privileges in the "get info" window.
--Did you add your userid name to list? --
I'm not sure what you mean by this?
Just to be clear again - this hard drive icon has a lock on the bottom left corner. It won't even let me change the label color of this icon as everything is locked.
Batchmod you simply drop a folder or drive icon on. It isn't an add-on. And it is easier to use than the terminal to change ownership flags.
But it sounds like someone with root privilege messed things up royally. And that you can't use superuser.
If you unlock the ownership permissions, you see a list of system, root, guest, shortusername(s) and click "+" to ADD a USER.
Any changes you do make, you also need to apply to enclosed sub directories.
