Permissions Reset... This simple FREE application was developed to solve one of the most annoying problems with Mac OS X computers, Permissions problems

Permissions Problems range from not being to save your own work into your Documents folder, not being able to update files that others have sent you - all the way to applications not working correctly or even crashing! Permissions are a security mechanism that can control how you and others interact with files. Sometimes these permissions get incorrectly set, or messed up and then the pain begins.

Installed a ssd drive in my old iMac late 2009 (gave new life to an old mac)... but have recently had some problems with disk permissions. Dialogue warnings 'you cant' save this, you don't have permissions to do that.

Even though I change permissions in the Info... still doesn't work. Sometimes the info shows dublicate of users for 'myself' and 'everyone'. Resetting permissions using Apple Disk Utility app, didn't solve the problem.

Permissions Reset doesn't have many features and kind of an oldish user interface... but it did solve my problem with disk permissions... and I'm on Mavericks.

The Apps is free... so it doesn't hurt to see if it can solve your disk permission problems too!

Thanx!

Whatever the hell this app's shortcomings may be, it STILL works in 10.7.2 and that's what I need it to do.

BEWARE:
When you Quit "Permissions Reset"
this App does connect to linhost192.prod.mesa1.secureserver.net (68.178.232.60)

"Permissions Reset
wants to connect to www.ohanaware.com on TCP port 80 (http)"

then a window appears with Product-Ads !!
"Thank you for trying Permissions Reset, we hope that you like it. We'd also like to show you our other applications."


You then have to close that window, before the App gets closed!

This is not acceptable on a Mac!!!

not acceptable on a mac are people that do not the least for the community on the one hand and on the other hand are as unappreciative as this guy

what's wrong with pointing users of a developer's free app to other apps that maybe grant a mminimal compensation for all their hard work ??

Still works great in Snow Leopard. This program has saved me hours of pain.

I prefer BatCHMOD which does the same thing but also includes a browse button instead of having to drag a file or folder onto the app's window.

Disk Utility only fixes permission problems on files installed as part of the operating system. It doesn't do anything with user files.

It looks like Permission Reset gives you easy GUI control to work with permissions on your own files.

Indeed it does work on files & folders, which is nice because I was finally able to get some files in my trash to delete, as they have been stuck in there for some time. Excellent!

I was also confused about how this software differed from Disk Utility, thanks for the explanation.

Okay... so this is just a modified "Get Info" window...

Exactly, it's like a Batch Get Info window...
