When a user on a MAC running High Sierra creates a new folder on a mounted share (Seagate NAS2Bay) the default permissions are only for the creating user. How/what I can change on the Mac to alter the default permissions for newly created folders?

Thanks

Hello and welcome.

Due to the way NAS drives work, I don't know of any way to change the permissions as the default. Since multiple users can use the NAS, permissions are applied on a user-level basis, unless you create a "public" share.

I would check the documentation that Seagate has, or see if there are any options in the setup/utility software that came with the drive.

Thanks Cory. But the mac IS creating the folder in the Public folder. No one else can access it once created. I've taught the user how to change its permissions after the fact but I was hoping OSX had a way to default it.

Thanks
