Hi. I’d like to ask for help concerning changing the file permissons in My Cloud EX2 8 TB. The problem is: under Windows I’m trying to change the file’s attributes (read-only, hidden, etc) but the changes I make are simply lost whenever I click ‘OK’ on the File Properties window.
When I open the ‘Security’ tab on the File Properties window, the My Cloud’s admin is listed only with the following attributes:
Then, when I click on ‘Edit’ I check FULL CONTROL and MODIFY, but after clicking OK the options I checked are simply forgotten. Afterwards, I click on ‘Advanced’ to check the permission parameters; the NAS admin is listing as having “Access = Special”. So I go on and edit the admin’s permissions:
HOWEVER, after clicking APPLY or OK, the parameters I changed are simply lost, as depicted below:
So, that means that all the changes I do to my files are not taken into consideration. It seems that the NAS is not auhtorizing changes to permissions or even not recording the permission changes I do. I’ve even created a 2nd user to try it but in vain.
The settings of the NAS concerning shares and user permissions are correct, there’s no problem about that (the share I’m trying to change in this example is MY_FILES). As you can see, the user ‘admin’ has R/W privileges on ‘MY_FILES’ share. Before this setting I had also tried having this share configured as ‘Public’, but nothing changed:
And this thing happens also with the ‘Public’ share: I can’t change the permissions and attributes of any file or folder under this share.
Could you please try to help me out?
Thank you so much. Best regards,
