    Hi

    Having used a buffalo linkstation live for a couple of years I've bought a drivestation to increase the capacity. I've connected this to the linkstation via usb.

    The problem I have is that the drivestation is read only and I cant seem to change this, I'm using windows 7 and have Admin privileges but permission is always denied when I try to alter anything.

    Any ideas please ?

    thanks in advance

    Done it !!!

    Took me absolutely ages and went round in circles most of yesterday afternoon

    got up this morning and had another look and to cut a really long story short had to reformat the drive to XFS , which is the same as the NAS drive and its all good

    Thanks
