Security Tab

By raharr ·
I keep getting information about a security tab under properities of folders. I can not seem to find it. Is there something I need to change in order to see it?

If you Right Mouse click on a folder in windows Explorer and select Properties, there will be a security tab there. If you click on the "Security Tab" it will show all the Users and Groups that have rights and what those rights are. if you are an Administrator you can change rights, if not you can only see them.

Hope that helps,

That is the problem. There is no security tab when I do a right click.

You need to disable simple file sharing. In windows explorer, go to the tools menu and select folder options. Select the view tab and uncheck simple file sharing.

Hi Russ,

The "security tab" is only present on NTFS partitions since this deals with NTFS permissions. FAT32 partitons will not have a security tab since you can not set NTFS permissions on FAT32 partitons. You will need to convert your partition to NTFS file system. This is how it is done:

Go to the command prompt and type this line -

convert C: /FS:NTFS

This will convert volume C: from FAT32 to NTFS when it reboots the system. You would, of course, substitute the C: for the letter of the volume you wish to convert to NTFS. You may also type convert /? to display other switches available to you for the conversion.

I hope this helps you.
