I will first off beg your forgiveness, as I am very new to iMac.


I have been using PC for quite some 20 years, but I am having difficulty with Finder and it's peculiarities.


My main problem is that there is no lock icon available to me in the "Get Info" section, when I go to place files on an external drive.


Despite being the administrator of this particular iMac, I only get "you can only read" in the Sharing and Permissions section.


I can find no function to allow me alter this situation.


Can anybody please help me?


Thank you.

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion, external drive
