Chapter 9. Networking with Microsoft Win... > Windows and NTFS Permissions

Windows and NTFS Permissions

Windows servers also provide a second level of security related to shared files and folders on server drives that have been formatted with NTFS. Folders and files on NTFS volumes can also be assigned NTFS permissions. This differs from share permissions, which can only be applied to drives and folders. The NTFS permission levels for folders are listed in Table 9.1.

Table 9.1. NTFS Folder Permissions

Read and ExecuteNavigate the folder contents (subfolders and files), execute contained executables and actions related to the list folder, and read and write permissions.
List Folder ContentsView the contents of the folder, such as subfolders and files in the folders.
