8.1. Restrict access to a folder you're sharing

When you share a folder you actually have two lines of defense to protect the folder's contents. The first line of defense is the folder's share permissions. These are the permissions you access through the folder's Sharing property page when you create the share. The default share permissions include Full Control, Change, and Read. These are called standard permissions because they are a standard set of combined permissions. Although you can allow or deny any of these three standard permissions to any user or group, they don't offer a lot of flexibility of access control. Share permissions apply only to users who access the folder from the LAN—they have no effect on local users.

The key to enjoying tighter control over shared folders and files is using NTFS permissions. These object permissions that you can set on folders and files in NTFS volumes give you much finer control over who can access a resource and the level of access they have. Plus, NTFS permissions enable you to assign permissions to individual files, unlike share permissions that apply only to the shared folder (called the share point).
