I received an error saying "The folder can't be opened because you don't have permission to see it's content." This is on an external drive and it's only happening to one specific folder on that drive. I checked the permissions and it says the top line says "I can only read", yet under the table, it lists my name and shows that I can read and write.

The only thing that I can think of doing differently was renaming the drive so not sure if that caused it. But then, why am I able to view the other folders in the same drive?

  • Can you open Terminal, run ls -0leO@d on the folder and add the result to the question?

  • Is this the only response? Please copy/paste both the command you ran and all the output you got to the question
