I'm stuck on something that I just do not understand. I cannot get my external hard drives to give me write permissions over my local network in some directions.
I recently replaced our hard drives with SSDs and with the reinstall, I had some difficulty getting the permissions on my external hard drives working correctly. I did several Google searches and read a procedure that I needed to go through adding a user called "Everyone" to each of my drives that I wanted to access and share. I did this and gave "Everyone" full read/write permissions and also went into advanced options (or wherever it is) and chose the checkbox to give all child files and folders these same permissions. It took ages but eventually it all seemed OK. I had one folder which could not be corrected this way and ended up having go change each file individually. Total pain. Anyway, I thought I was all set but if I try to move a file from Machine A to Machine B (the drives are attached to , I get an error that I don't have permission to do this. No overrides or Admin permissions are an option and when I check the specifics it *is* correctly shared with not only Everyone but this machine as well (so it attempted to fix the permissions itself at some point). However, if I go to Machine B and grab the files from Machine A over the network, I can drag them to the correct location without problem.
I want to understand why this is happening and what I need to do to fix it. Clearly, something isn't correct in the permissions somewhere but I cannot understand what or why. Any help troubleshooting this would be so, so wonderful and very much appreciated. I love to learn as I do this and would really appreciate understanding what went wrong.
Thanks so much!
