Hi. I’m running Snow Leopard on a new iMac – 266 GHz Intel core i5.
The partitions my 2TB drive (6 partitions) and two 1TB drives have been reset to “Custom Access” and I – the admin – apparently don’t have “sufficient privileges” to make changes. All icons show lock.
I’ve tried using the system’s disk utility, WD’s smartware – which doesn’t acknowledge the lock, reinstalling the system (not a OS problem since it replicates on other machines using Leopard or Tiger), using Get Info to change settings. Nada. zip … panic …
Please help!!! These drives contain all my data! and even my Time Machine backup!
