I have an iMac running 10.7.3. I have a BC partition running Windows 7 32-bit. I have a Firewire connected external LaCie hard drive.
Almost every time I come back to OS X from running Windows and check the Info on the drive it says that I can only read, even though I can see that my user has RW permissions. And I know that the read only thing is true since I get an error from Time Machine when it tried to write to the drive. My fix is to log out and back in and when then I do Info, it says that I can both read and write and TM will run OK. Any thoughts?
