iDisk/Disk Copy Problems

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I have been having problems with OS X ever since I went into the root and changed all permissions in every folder to read/write. I now know that this is a giant no no. Right now I can't mount anything unless I go to the root (that is, i cant mount anything like disk images and idisks (-192 error in disk copy), but floppies and hds mount fine). Anyone know how to fix this besides reinstalling X?

    Holy Moly.

    I'm sorry to have to resort to this advice, but I'd reinstall X to restore proper permissions on everything.

    Many applications check to see that certain files/folders have certain privileges. You've gone ahead and enabled read/write access on files that only the OS should have control over... not even the admin! Wonky behaviour should be expected to ensue... not just in Disk Copy.

    good luck!
