Permission, dropboxes, and file transfer, oh my...
Posted on 2004-08-06
I write music for a living, and am working in a small studio environment with another writer. We are using Logic Pro 6 and would likel to be able to easiy swap Logic sessions.
I would like to set up a dropbox on one or the other workstation so that we could simply drag files into it, and the other person could access them. Here are my problems:
1) When I try to drag files into my coworker's dropbox, I get the following warning "you will not be able to see the results of this operation. Ok to proceed?" I can then copy the file, and it does go to the right place. I can't figure out how to deal with this more easily.
2) When my coworker copies files into my dropbox, they come across with the permissions set 644 (-rw-r--r--). That is a pain because when he does guitar overdubs, there are a myriad of ".aif" files. I can't use the files without changing the permissions on all of them.
Is there an elegant way to set this up?
