Howdy! I have perused the net but have found no answer. I have a 2TB WD Ext-HD. For some reason, I cannot rename certain folders in this harddrive. It was formatted on my Mac Book Pro... I have Admin privileges... I have run disk repair on the Ext HD and disk permissions repair on my internal hd and no change. Any Help? Thanks!

Click on the HD in your Finder,
click "Info"
at the bottom of the screen, select "ignore owner properties" (or something like that)
that should do the trick

Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.
