    Repair Permissions

    All my Mac users have lost their write access to their home folders on our Mac network!

    This means that whilst they can log in, they can't save any work to their home drive.

    I have no idea how this happened, but I think I can see where the problem is. Under "Get Info" for each home folder, the permissions don't include the user.

    If I create a new user, the permissions DO include that user.

    So, somewhere, the permissions for all the folders have had the user removed, thus they only get read access to their own folders.

    Is their a 'repair permissions' utility that I can use? Or am I going to have to reset each and every folder's permissions manually?

    I see there is one in Disk Utility, but our server is configured so that our Home folders are on a data partition, not the boot drive. If I select the data drive, then First Aid is greyed out.

    Thanks in advance.
