Create a shared mounted volume for all users of a Mac
Authored by: neuralstatic on Mar 01, '10 08:55:40AM

i can see this is differnt than making a simple partition on a hard drive and disabling permissions, but in which ways is it better?

A script like this exists to make it easy. Possibly for someone needing functionality of a common folder without partitioning hard drive or having a thumb drive to loose.

And, published like this, the curious can read it. Some can learn, like I did while writing the hint. The more knowledgeful can make it better.

Yeah, exactly. That's what I do all the time: click "Ignore Ownership on this Volume" in the Get Info pane... so what's the big deal?
