I've followed the online instructions for creating shared files between my mac desktop and my macbook air but for some reason the files are still read only (despite the fact that i have granted read-write permission).  Any suggestions on how to solve this?

    Found the solution...basically the permissions are not automatically cascaded down to sub folders and files so you have to do the following... modified fromhttps://discussions.apple.com/thread/2743520?start=0&tstart=0

     

    On the folder that you would like to change, select the Get Info and then click on the cogwheel at the bottom of the Get Info dialog.

    Click on the menu pick "Apply to enclosed items ..." and confirm the warning message.

    Then the same read & write permissions are applied to all the subfolders of the selected folder.
