    Can't access catalog on external drive

    Badly Drawn Boy Level 1

      I have my LR catalog on an external disk. My startup drive on my iMac recently crashed and I had to completely reinstall El Capitan from scratch. I moved LR preferences back to the new installation of El Capitan, and then opened LR. I got this error message:


      "The Lightroom catalog cannot be used because the parent folder “/Volumes/Master/Lightroom” does not allow files to be created within it."


      I assume this is a permissions problem that occurred when I reinstalled OS X on my iMac, but I'm not sure how to fix it?


      Here are the permissions on the drive. How do I fix this?
