Nautilus as Root/Sudo

I disabled the root account now.
many times I run 'Nautilus' as Root with 'Run an application as an other  
user', and managed file transfers on my harddisk, which were otherwise to  
much restricted or not possible.
How can I run Nautilus without facing any file owner restrictions?
If I do in the shell ($ sudo nautilus) there are a lot of Error messages,  
eventhough Nautilus itself shows up and seems to work.
So I am not sure if I do right.
Thanks for suggestions.
