I want to access MacBook Pro OS 10.11.15 files from a Windows 7. Can read files ok but writing causes permission problem. ERROR AT WINDOWS IS: "You need permission to perform this action. You require permission from the computer's administrator to make changes to this file."
At MacBook, I cannot enable Read & Write for my MacBook account.
I select my hard disk. Open Get Info > Sharing & Permissions. But + button is grayed out.
So then I tried going to the folder I'm working with; open Get Info > Sharing & Perm..; my present account is not listed; the + is enabled so I click it; the list shows my present account, but disabled (grayed out)
THINGS I'VE TRIED SO FAR, THAT DIDN'T WORK: opening Windows File Explorer with "run as administrator." At Mac > Terminal window: set permission of root to read & write (chmod a+rw *) Set permission of target folder to read & write: cd to folder chmod -Rf a+rw * Turned off Mac and Windows Filewalls.
