Hey, I'm not really sure what happened but at some point this morning I F-ed up and made it so every single time I try to move a file or delete something I get prompted for my password.

It doesn't matter what it is or what folder it is, I am prompted for every single thing I do. Anyone have any ideas?

MBP - 10.6.4

Did you change permissions on your home folder?

I did. I have two users on my MPB, both are me. One is for work and the other is for personal. I made it so I can access all the files in the home folder from either account.

If I want to be able to do this, will I have to enter my password for everything?

Thanks again.
