NTFS Permissions

by Alpha-Male In reply to NTFS Permissions

Shared folder permissions provide very limited security - they only protect resources if they are accessed over the network. Shared folder permissions are also limited as they provide access to the entire directory structure from the share point down into the subdirectories. You can assign or deny read, change or full control permissions.

NTFS permissions can be assigned at both the file and folder level. You use NTFS folder permissions to control access to a folder.You use NTFS file permissions to control access to specific files.
NTFS permissions include Read, Write, List Contents, Read and Execute, Modify, Full Control and a battery of advanced permission options also. Needless to say, NFTS permissions offer you much more control and flexibility.

Take a look here for more information:

Shared permissions are less restrictive than NTFS security permissions. For example, what if you want to share out a folder that has multiples sub-folders, and you want different permissions set to each sub-folder? To further restrict permissions to each sub folder, you'd use NTFS security permissions. If this isn't clear, feel free to email me.

Share permissions are about how a user accesses a file or folder over the network.
NTFS permissions are about how a user accesses a file or folder when logged into the computer that the file or folder is physically hosted on.

In other words, Icould have full control NTFS permissions to a folder on ServerA and only read share permissions to the same folder. If I were sitting at ServerA, I would have no problem accessing and modifying the files within that folder. However, if I were sitting at ServerB, I would only be able to read the files in that folder because I don't have the proper share permissions to modify anything in it.
