Avoid drop box file permission issues
Authored by: Dr. T on Oct 08, '08 09:45:15AM

I don't know the cause of the problem, and all my attempted workarounds failed. I've completely abandoned Drop Box folders in my household with three OS X Macs. I now move files using Screen Sharing and an external hard drive with "Read & Write" permissions given to everyone and "Ignore ownership on this volume" checked. All three Macs can mount the volume, copy files from it, and add files to it.

If Apple ever fixes the Drop Box permissions problem, I will happily go back (but I'm not holding my breath).
