How do I set permissions/ownership on my external USB hard drive in Windows 7 in such a way that I have write access to it at any Windows 7 machine?
Current situation is quite strange to me - the directories are owned by HOSTNAME\Administrators, I am user TOMAS, I am within this group (I am an administrator), but I cannot write to the disk. Can you please explain why?
And how to set it in such a way that I can operate from any Windows 7 machine. If I change ownership to Tomas, I will likely have an issue on different computer, where I use different user....
Maybe the best way would be to give full access to
HOSTNAME\Users or to
calcs for the drive:
C:\Users\Tomas>cacls e: E:\ Everyone:R CREATOR OWNER:(OI)(CI)(IO)F NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM:(OI)(CI)F NB-CSO-PC\Tomas:(OI)(CI)F BUILTIN\Administrators:(OI)(CI)F BUILTIN\Users:(OI)(CI)F
