when I'm on the localdrive, I can rightclick on a file or folder,select "compress as" and compress the file as a zip file. .gz, etc.
But, when I'm on an external USB drive, this does not work. it just spins and spins without compressing anything. Why? am I doing something wrong?
I really like using this method. I've never really gotten the handle of compressing files in Ark using it's "traditional" method. Can someone explain this traditional method to me? 'Cuz once I understand it, I'll probably use it more than the right click method.
EDIT...In using Ark and trying to create an archive, I'mbeing told I do not have permission to write to the USB drive.
EDIT AGAIN. found teh Ark handbook. I see now...Quite simple. the problemI was ahving involved trying to create archives on the USB drive and other storage drive...I don't have these write permissions. How do I get these permissions?
