    Default Mount backup-drive as different user

    Hi,

    I am sorry if this is known to all but me or if this is the wronf forum;

    I am trying to mount my old external backup-drive which I made for an old user account (which I know + remember the password for)

    How can I mount the old hard-drive and get full access to it now that I have a different user-account? I can't see anything in my user-area if I just connect the drive to my macbook

    bw, S

    Default

    You can open up Terminal any do a Chmod on the user folder...


    For example..
    Code:
    sudo chmod -R 777 /Volumes/<[Blah]>/Users
    That should give you full access
