User Permissions on OS X 10.12 Sierra

Hi,

I want to copy a small *.aiff file to the system sound directory on the above operating system. That being "\System\Library\Sounds\" but I am getting blocked at every turn by the OS. It either tells me I don't have permission to perform that action or won't let me add myself to the user list that can read/write to that directory apart from admin even though my account is an admin account.

Best Regards,

Lachlan.

Hi,

It looks like a permission issue caused by Mac's built-in SIP.

Please try to temporarily disable the System Integrity Protection as below -

Restart with the Command and R keys pressed down, go into the Terminal, and run:

 csrutil disable

Then try to copy the file you want.

Good luck.

Best Regards
Raghav.
