    Hi lads,

    Can someone please clarify what the NTFS "change" permission does.

    Does it give a user any other permissions apart from being able to change the current permissions of a file or folder.

    I suppose technically it would allow anything because you could change the perms of a file/folder to anything you wanted?

    Also, Im a little confused as to the seperate permissions for:

    NTFS Permissions & Shared Folder Permission.

    Ultimatley, If I wanted a particuluar group to have write access to a folder (eg sales).... I take it I would have to Allow Write permissions to both the NTFS permissions and also the Shared Folder permissions of the sales folder?

    I imagine you could not write with only one or the other permission?

    Thanks alot guys.. hope i'm clear in my questions.

    share permissions are used when accessing files/folders over a network, The NTFS persmissions are more specfic and can be used locally.
