Create a shared mounted volume for all users of a Mac
Authored by: da2357 on Mar 02, '10 03:13:03AM

OK, (and forgive my ignorance) but if I only want full read-write on /Users/Shared/Basket, how would I limit the umask command to just that folder?

Umask doesn't restrict itself to any particular shared folder. For that you'd use ACLs and ACE, i.e. Permissions based setup. Umask is more helpful for group based sharing of files on all shared filesystems (network drives, Xsan, etc).
