folder permissions

By frec1 ·
Is there a hiererchy scale for groups, users etc. For example, I have a directory and "Everyone" has full control plus all of the "Users" If I change a specific users setting will this over ride "everyone" or does "Everyone" have more power.

Yes, there is a hierarchy.
Specific user permissions will override specific group permissions, which override Everyone.

My statement above is true for less restricive permissions. More restrictive permissions will prevail from any level.

I believe it is the strongest permission well override the weaker one. You can test this yourself by creating a new folder, create a test user, then give everyone full control of the folder, and the test user Read Only. log on as the test user who has full control as a part of everyone, but read only as a user. You well find what I stated above. The user well be able to do what ever it wants in the folder.

It only changes in FAT and NTFS. You can give everyone full control in FAT or Share permissions, and give a user Read Only in NTFS permissions and then the user well have read only.
