I want to have all of Apple Logic’s sample and loops on an external drive with a Symbolic Link in /Library/Application Support. I’ve done this before on a different Sierra system, and had no problems, but on this new Sierra system I’m getting a Permission Denied message. I’m admin, but apparently I only have Read privileges to the Application Support folder.
But that was the case on the other Sierra system, and I was able to create a Link.
Anyway, I tried using BatChmod to give admin Write privileges to Application Support folder, but after executing, nothing changed. I still, as admin, had no Write privileges.
I really only need temporary Write privileges to this folder, just long enough to create Link, and then revert back if I need to. I am definitely out of my league and don’t want to screw up my system, but I can follow simple command line directions. I’ve read about sudo /bin/bash and sudo bash and enabling root user, but I can't figure out which is the quickest, safest way accomplish my objective.
