Having just replaced my wife’s iMac (as the previous one suddenly died), I need to re-establish links from my Mac to hers (for troubleshooting, emergency forwarding of files to her office etc.). I had previously set up shares that gave me shortcut access to particular folders. Now I can’t get to them. What do I need to do to make, for example, her Documents folder accessible to me? (When mounted on my Mac, the Documents folder states 0 bytes.)
I have tried setting RW permissions for “everyone”, but that doesn’t change anything.
Both computers are running Monterey 12.6.
Rather than writing a new manual just for me, can someone point me to an online tutorial on the industry standard way to set up shares and permissions between computers?
Solved, with Sebby’s help.
Solution: In Security & Privacy > Full Disk Access > “+” (add) > [⌘⇧. to reveal hidden files] System: usr: sbin: smbd [Open].
This gives smbd (SMB daemon) full access on the host computer to the user on the remote computer.
