this is weird. I am the only user on my macpro.
In my user accounts their is my user and a guest account, which is disabled.

my username has the allow user to administer computer is greyed out but the checkbox for allower user to administer is checked.

Yet, I am trying to copy over a folder from time machine and restore it and it says I don't have sufficient priveleges. I've reset the master user password. I don't know what else to do.

Mac OS X 10.5: Administrator user changes to standard, this maybe of some help.
