No "Ignore privileges on this volume"

Recommended Posts


I'm trying to 'duplicate' to a new FAT32 usb drive from OS 10.4 server and I don't get the "Ignore privileges on this volume" checkbox on this external drive.


Is it important to de-select "ignore privileges" if I don't need a bootable drive?

Is it due to the FAT32 partition/format?

That checkbox is for Macintosh volumes, not Windows volumes.


You can not successfully copy a bunch of Macintosh files to a FAT32 disk. It will be slow and get errors. It may also result in data corruption depending on the type of files you are copying.


You should reformat the disk for Mac OS Extended.
