I have two separate disks on my Mac running OS X 10.10.2. My home directory is on the non-boot disk. I am seeing some weird issues. For example, Chrome can download files to ~/Downloads, but Deluge and uTorrent complains that it cannot write to ~/Downloads.
I found a specific example that might highlight the root cause. When I create a file on the boot disk then move it to the non-boot disk the file is successfully moved, but an error is reported.
As an example I will first create a file (test.txt) on the boot disk (/tmp), then attempt to move it to the non-boot disk (~). Notice also that the group is 'wheel' when I create the file, but 'staff' after I move it.
> touch /tmp/test.txt > ls -le /tmp/test.txt -rw-r--r-- 1 nick wheel 0 Mar 1 17:49 /tmp/test.txt > mv /tmp/test.txt . mv: ./test.txt: set owner/group (was: 501/0): Operation not permitted > ls -le ./test.txt -rw-r--r-- 1 nick staff 0 Mar 1 17:49 ./test.txt
How can I fix this issue? Thanks
Edit: "Ignore ownership on this volume" is off on the non-boot disk.
