That was exactly why I asked you that question.
By Saving your project with Assets -> Copy external files to project folder
, your files will automatically be copied to an Audio folder with the same permissions as your default project location.
Another thing I like to do when using external drives is to enable the Ignore ownership on this volume
You can do this by highlighting your hard drive and then hit Command - I
, there's a check box at the bottom of the Info window.
Anyway. Glad you managed to find a solution.
