I have a 2TB Passport for Mac which I used with my MacBook Pro 15" and I could read/write to it no problem. I then used it on my 27" iMac and again I could read/write to it. But, when I then used it on my MacBook again the permissions had mysteriously changed to read only.
When I use disk utility it tells me that Write Status is Read/Write and S.M..A.R.T. Status - Not Supported.
When I go to the sub folder JD 2TB1 the following is the information.
Mount Point : /Volumes/JD 2TB1 Capacity : 2 TB (2,000,362,143,744 Bytes)
Format : Windows NT File System (NTFS) Available : 10.08 GB (10,077,528,064 Bytes)
Owners Enabled : No Used : 1.99 TB (1,990,284,611,584 Bytes)
Number of Folders : 0 Number of Files : 156,156
This was a My Passport for Mac bought at the Apple Store in Aberdeen. I have not done anything to change the format. I have only been copying and pasting to the drive.
Anyone know the answer?
