I've done a fair bit of searching and can't seem to find any threads dealing with this problem...
Relatively recently I purchased a 500GB seagate external HD (firewire) to use with my intel iMac.
I partitioned the drive so that it had 2 equal halves, one journaled one extended.
The plan was to use one half of the drive to back up my computer, and the other half to hold random multimedia (I do a bit of music and video editing).
The problem arises in the random (Mac OS Extended) drive. I can copy information on to the drive, but once it is on there I cannot move it.
Not within the drive or to another destination. I have checked the box to ignore disc permissions for this part of the drive but the problem persists.
The same thing happens on the backup part of the drive, but I can get around that problem via the backup software that came with it (bounceback express)
I've already re-partitioned the drive a number of times only to encounter the same problem again and again.
One more thing worth noting is that one of the times I partitioned the drive it worked exactly as I wanted it to for a few days but then reverted to its original behaviour.
Hopefully someone has some ideas on how I can get around this problem...
