Ok, seriously, why does "security" have to be SO complicated, at least on home users? It is so bad that I'm pretty sure it is doing that exact opposite of what it should be - I can't modify/save/access files in certain locations but I have no real way of knowing if other people can or not, as I have no idea what some of the options even mean.
As an example, I can't save changes to some files directly to my Dropbox folder, a box comes up saying I do not have permission to save to this location. So I decide to try to change owner/permissions. Turns out I *AM* the owner of the Dropbox folder, so I try to change permissions. Now, which account do I change - My user name account, Administrator account, Home User account? And as far as permissions go, whats the difference? My user name account has every permission except "Special." Whats the Special permission? How do I enable it? This is all RIDICULOUSLY complicated, and seems to me to defeat the whole purpose of security, if the main user can't even configure it correctly. Its insane.
Any help would be appreciated--if in ENGLISH, not Microtalk
