Help with drive permissions
Posted by: Mr645

Had the boot drive fail on a dual 1.0 MDD, OS 10.4.6.

Not a big deal, just replaced the drive, installed apps and updates but the three other drives inside this Mac won't mount. because I don't have permissions to access them. I added two users to the new installation, the same user names and passwords as before.

I must be missing something, but what?

Thanks for tips.

Read the Jumper settings on each drive, and try different combos. You changed something when you added the new drive.

Mounting and no access due to permissions problems are 2 different animals. The latter should show up only after the drives are mounted.

If all else fails, you may have to boot from the OS disk and change owners and password on those drives that way.

I think I will just put an OUT OF ORDER

Not sure what I did, but I made a Root User, changed the premissions back to where they should be and problem solved.

Each of the 3 drives were simply set to all users had no access.
