    Cool Issue with copying from external
    Hi Guys,

    Just got my mini and am so far really enjoying, I have two snags though. I copied one folder from my external to the desktop in that folder is 4 folders, documents, music, photos, video. The folders show a lock icon so I right clicked and looked at permissions I have read/write access why would it show locked?

    Secondly I'm trying to drag and drop files from my temp folder to the docs, music, photos, etc folder in my home folder and instead of just moving it's copying the items is that normal? I even try cut and paste but that didn't work either.

    Thanks guys,
    Dan

    Way... way too many specs to list.
    Yes, to move hold the cmd key down when you drag/drop.. locked is a secondary ACL set, separate from the usual BSD perms

    Thanks Mike it turned out to be a permissions problem because the source drive is NTFS. A friend used log me in and showed me batchmod, that's an awesome little script.
