Hi.

 

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
