Permissions

I have 3 hdds in my computer. One for Windows 7, one for Windows XP and one for storage. I am able to save things to my storage drive from XP with no problem, 7 however, insists that I don't have permission to save to any of the folders on that drive.

Rightclick on external>Properties>Sharing. Share with Full Control to Everyone.

You may need to do the same with the folders you wish to copy over. Start with User then the folders (Docs, Pics, etc).

Last resort: Take Ownership Shortcut

Ok, I have put myself in a real mess here. I changed all the default permissions on the "Users" folder, I made my account Owner. I did all this because HomeGroup wasn't working, so I thought I would try sharing via permissions. Is there a way to get the default permissions back for the Users...
