#11256: Symlink permission denied

 I am running MacOS 10.14.
 Using Mountain Duck, I have my google drive successfully mounted at
 '/Users/<username>/mnt/GoogleDrive/' on my local computer.
 I am able to browse and access the files to move them around and view
 However, when I am running a program (a python script) that needs to
 create a symlink from one folder in my google drive to another folder in
 the google drive, I get a "permission denied" error.

 os.symlink(src, dst)
 PermissionError: [Errno 13] Permission denied:
 -> '/Users/kperks/mnt/GoogleDrive/GoogleDrive/Team

 I tried changing permissions on the mounted drive so that "everyone"
 rather then just my username has read/write by going into the finder
 "Info" and changing permissions on the mounted drive recursively. ls -la
 confirmed that permissions had been changed on the file above that a
 symlink was attempted on.

 Thank you for your help.
