Hello Everyone, and thank you in advance for your help.


I have tried searching for an existing answer but could not find anything specific to my issue.


Basically, I have an external hard drive I've been using for months with ZERO issues.


Literally overnight, I wake up my computer from sleep, and all of the sudden I cannot write to my hard drive.


I can still read it, and oddly enough, when i go to "get info", it tells me that my user account has read & write access (however I CANNOT write).


Also, everything at the bottom of "get info" is greyed out. Even when I "unlock" the folder by putting in my password, everything is still greyed out.


I cannot add or subtract any users, and the gear/pulldown menu is greyed out.


When I click or unclick "Ignore ownership on this volume", it does not change anything


I have attached a screen shot of my external hard drive's "get info" screen.


Thanks!!!Screen Shot 2014-03-06 at 7.27.10 PM.png
