I have a 1 TB external USB 3.0 hdd which I would like to access from multiple computers; however, I cannot do this.

 

I have no problems with drive and it works great.  It houses music and movies.

 

If I remove it, and plug it into ANY other computer, I only get error message telling me I don't have permission to access the contents.

I tried adding user EVERYONE to security tab and gave the group full control.  That seems to have no effect, and I'm guessing it's because it's somehow tied to the local computer where I edited the security.

 

How do I modify security on drive to allow other computers to access?

I don't use security software.  Am using things in chrome browser to stop ads and scripts.

Not sure what happened, but the problem is solved.  My best guess is that the changes to file permissions didn't propagate to sub-files/directories... maybe I didn't eject it before I plugged it into my wife's computer.  Thanks
