yes the pc recording is 24/7, but even if i reboot it still cant be accessed, if i mess with the files by righ clicking and messing with permissions i can access them, but how do i set it so i dont have to?
Do you mean the default permissions on the folder are set to strict and then you change them (once) and they are ok?
If so, can you play with the permissions on the master folder? I can't 'member if it was windows or linux that I had this issue on, but not only did I have to open the permissions on a folder, I had to apply those setting to all subfolders and files. I am pretty sure it was windows and it was simply a check box.
Look around - I will ponder it and see if I can get more specific.
