You need to check the files permissions. either you will need to fix the permissions by using the Disk Utility or you will have to click on the folder in question. press on the keyboard Command + i ( information for folder) then on the bottom of the window there is the sharing & permissions section. if you want to be able to move, copy, delete and read from that folder you will need to set it here.
If the little lock in the bottom right corner is locked you must click on it to unlock it, then enter in the admin password. once you set the privileges for each person or persons, you should click on the sprocket with down arrow. And specify if this setup is for only that folder tier or apply the same setting to all inclosed files and folders inside that folder.
if you do not do that last step then you will have that same issue again.

How to move/copy user files to external hard disc (wall or usb powered) so that productivity applications default-save to the external hard disc (virtual drive) folder via ...


When you connect an USB drive to a Windows machine, or a Mac the drive is shown. On a Windows machine in the explorer with a new drive letter, like D: or E: on a Mac it is on the desktop with a name.
Then you can access it as any other drive. But if you are using program's like Office, you have to tell the software what drive and what folder is the default folder to save your data.

In explorer and on the Mac with finder, you also can move files around to any folder you want. On the internal drive or to the external drive.

How to Speed up a Slow Mac


Apple Mac computers can also become slow and sluggish with time and use. So here I will show you four methods to speed up your old-slow-mac.

Method 1: Free up hard drive space
You might have stored many huge video files, thousands of photos and music tracks on our Mac computer. The popularity of using solid-state drives (SSDs) of Mac computers means considerably less capacity than traditional hard drives.

1. Find the large media files on your Mac, delete the unused videos, apps, photos, etc. Or you can move all of them to an external hard drive, and remove them from your Mac.

2. Empty your trash cans, say the user account's main trash can and the iPhoto/iMovie/Mail trash can.

3. Remove junk files from your old Mac, MacClean is the way to go. It helps removing Internet junk, user junk, system junk and application junk on your hard drive.http://www.imobie.com/macclean/

Method 2. Free up more RAM

Most Macs ship with between 4GB and 16GB of RAM. If your Mac has only 4GB or 8GB RAM, the system might be running low when launching programs or loading document.
Step 1. Open up Terminal: ~/Applications/Utilities.
Step 2. Enter the command: Purge, and tap the enter tab.
Step 3. Give your Mac a minute or two to complete the process.
Open up Activity Monitor to see the before and after results, you'll find the Free size increases in System Memory.

Method 3. Kill Unwanted login items

Step 1. Open up System Preferences, and click the Users & Groups.
Step 2. Click the Login Items tab, and you'll see a list of apps that open every time you turn on Mac.
Step 3. Select the login items you want to kill, and click the "-" button to remove them.

Method 4. Clean up your desktop

1. Delete the files you don't need any more, and empty the Trash.
2. Classified the files on your mac, and move them to some folders.
3.Name the folder so that you can easily find the one you need. Why Is My Mac So Slow and How to Fix It

To copy all the items in your iTunes library (including the iTunes Library file that holds all your playlists, playcounts, ratings, and other data) to your external hard drive, follow these steps:

Quit iTunes.
Locate your external hard drive.
Mac: On the desktop or Finder sidebar.

By default, the iTunes folder is located in:
Mac OS X: /Users/username/Music
Windows XP: \Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\My Music\
Windows Vista or Windows 7: \Users\username\My Music\
If the iTunes folder is not in the default location listed above then you can find where the iTunes folder is located by following these instructions:

Open your iTunes Preferences:
Mac: Choose iTunes > Preferences.
Windows: Choose Edit > Preferences.
Click Advanced.
The location of your iTunes folder will be listed in iTunes Media folder location box, as pictured below.


Drag the iTunes folder to your external hard drive. This can take a while if you have a lot of items.


When the transfer is complete, your iTunes Library will have been successfully copied to your external hard drive.

Does my Maxtor back up my iphotos?


Run a time machine backup. Then the easiest way would be to find a photo that you are willing to delete in iPhoto.

Jot down the name of the photo file, delete it. Then empty the trash.

Then go into time machine, try to search for that file, when you locate it, restore it. If you can then there is probably a good chance that you time machine backup is good.

To be on the safe side why not create a manual backup.

You'll find the iPhoto Library at:


/Users/username/Pictures

"username" will be your name that appears when you login to the computer.

  1. To get there, double-click the icon for your hard drive to open it, then double-click the Users folder. Double-click your Home folder, which is identified by a house icon and your username, and then double-click the Pictures folder to open it.
        1. Inside the Pictures folder you'll see a file called iPhoto Library. Copy the iPhoto Library file to a location other than your hard drive, such as your Maxtor external hard drive.
