asked on 

Disk from one Mac attached to another Mac. Can't access files on the added disk. How do I change permissions using the terminal to access them?

hi guys,

I have a Mac disk (has Mac Os X Mountain Lion on it) which has issues. So I had to attach it to another work Mac (with  Yosemite installed). However, I'm unable to access any of the files on there due to permission restrictions. I know I can't do anything using the GUI.

So, using the terminal, how can I change the permissions to permit me to access the files? I tried doing sudo chmod 775 /dev/disk1 but it didn't do anything sadly.

Any help would be great.

Merry xmas
