10.5: Share any files between users on the same Mac
Authored by: paulw on Jun 16, '09 07:58:19AM

For those who don't have an already partitioned drive, could a similar thing be accomplished by keeping the iTunes library on a sparse disk image, again with "ignore ownership on this volume" checked?

10.5: Share any files between users on the same Mac
Authored by: Frederico on Jun 19, '09 03:12:15AM

A quick test with a handful of songs says yes. Very cool idea, BTW. Could be very, very useful; e.g., to share adult content (explicit songs, NC-17 movies, etc.) from the same computer by simply password-protecting the disk image.

Possible drawbacks would include slower access time and possible frame-rate drops for HD content unless the DMG is located on a very fast drive or a raid.

This might qualify as a hint unto itself, don't you think, Rob G.?
