NTFS Permissions

NTFS (New Technology File System) Permissions is a file system feature that lets you set specify which files on your system can be accessed by which specific users, and what kind of access they have to each file. You can give a specific user the right to modify a file, or only to read that file, or you can give that user Full Control of the file.

To set NTFS permissions, in Windows Explorer, right-click on the name of the file or folder and in the popup menu that appears, select Properties. In the Properties dialog box that appears, click on the Security tab.

File or folder Properties dialog box

The top portion of the Properties dialog box displays a list of users that have an account on your system or on the network. Click on the name of a user or group to select it. The current permissions configured for that user or group will then be indicated in the bottom Permissions portion of the dialog box.

Permissions dialog box

To change the permissions configured for a selected user or group, click on the [Edit...] button. The Permissions dialog box for that user or group will appear. The Permissions dialog box displays a list of permissions with an [ ] Allow and [ ] Deny checkbox next to each permission. Check or uncheck the boxes to set the desired permission.
