My father has a permission problem whenever he wants to drag an item from a folder or directory to the desktop. Here is an example: "/home/SonyCam" cannot be moved because you do not have permissions to change it or it's parrent folder. The buttons are Retry and Cancel any help would be appreciated. Scott

This is normal under standard permissions. You have to change the permissions and in the case of /home/{directory}, you will have to do it as root.

Here is a handy refresher.

Files within /home/SonyCam could be moved/copied if the immutable bit is set to the right value and groups are created. Or the directory could be setup with no security.

Due to the move to M$ Exchange Server,
   anything that is a priority, please phone.
