I can't copy into my own Public folder neither with my finder nor from terminal 'sudo cp ~/temp/gyongyinek/* ~/Public/'

If I execute the above command from terminal I got this: Operation not permitted If I want to copy from finder then the crossed out mouse cursor appears suggesting that the operation is invalid...

This is my Public directory access flag: drwxr-xr-x+ 3 boti staff 204 Jan 11 2012 Public

If on finder I hit Command+I then I have the following access rules: Fetching: Read Only Fetching: Read Only boti(Me): Read & Write staff: Read Only everyone: Read Only

  • I also checked the disk permissions but they were ok.
