Just reading through last thread and I don't understand when you would and/or wouldn't use "repair permissions" ....

I think mine is set (using Smart Backup) to repair permissions....I don't know why?

What does it impact? When should I use it?

thx:

Personally, I never repair permissions unless I'm having permission problems.

Repairing permissions: What you need to know (http://www.macworld.com/article/52220/2006/08/repairpermissions.html) is a good article about that topic. Also see the last two references in Repair permissions (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Repair_permissions).

thank you both - I will remove that option from my SD cloning unless/until something happens to cause me to opt for it again.
