This drive is hooked up to my router as a network drive
I cannot change ownership of this drive- I am the admin. of my computer.
It will not allow me to place folders or files onto it, it denies me access
How do I change ownership of this drive to me while own the network.
When it is connected to my computer directly I do not have this problem

I'm not sure this model will work as a network drive.

I'm having issues accessing MY BOOK - ACCESS DENIED.
I change the "security" settings under "sharing" to hopefully set a password so ONLY I could access my external "My Book Essentials" by going into the Properties, then Security, then taking out "EVERYONE" and left only me : "USER: my name here" and it immediately blocked my ability to pull the files up by going to My Computer, G:\ , then My Book...
I went into "properties" and instead of seeing about 10 tabs now I only see about 5..."Security" is no longer one of them.
I only have "sharing" to work with and I took several steps to try to add "Administrator" (aka me!!), "USERS", "SYSTEM", etc. but non of the steps I took worked. How do I regain access to my book through my computer?
