Chapter 5. Supporting Windows XP File an... > Supporting NTFS Permissions

Lesson 2. Supporting NTFS Permissions

As an administrator, you must give users appropriate access to files and folders while still protecting the computer as much as possible. You do this through the proper assignment of NTFS permissions. As the name suggests, NTFS permissions are available only on volumes that are formatted with NTFS. NTFS permissions allow you to control which user accounts and groups can access files and folders and specifically which actions the users can perform. NTFS permissions are in effect when users log on locally to the computer and when they connect to a resource across the network. As a DST, you must understand how NTFS permissions work and how to properly assign them to user accounts and groups.

After this lesson, you will be able to

  • Identify basic file and folder permissions.

  • Identify the default permissions on an NTFS volume.

  • Configure advanced file and folder permissions.

  • Calculate effective NTFS permissions.

  • Control NTFS permission inheritance.

  • Explain the effect on NTFS permissions when you move or copy files.

  • Explain the concept of file ownership.

  • Troubleshoot NTFS permissions.
