Permissions Question


K

Kurt

I am just learning, and am confused on this issue. When assigning
permissions, there are the Allow and Deny checkboxes. I understand if
I choose deny that overrides everything, but is leaving both Allow and
Deny the same as applying Deny? If not, could someone please explain
the difference to me?

Thanks, Kurt

Don't know why you would want to do that but a deny always overrides an
allow, except that an explicit allow overrides and inherited deny. Inherited
permissions are grayed out. --- Steve

Hey Kurt,

Yes, you are on the right track. When there is a conflict
between the NTFS permissions then the "least restrictive"
permissions take effect. But since Deny is an exception to
the rule, It overrides any other permission. So in case
you select Everyone Full control- Allow and Everyone Full
Control - Deny(It shouldnt allow you to actually :)) )
Deny overrides all other permissions.

Should read:

I understand if I choose deny that overrides everything, but is
leaving both Allow and Deny BLANK the same as applying Deny?

Sorry about that error!

I am not sure the OS will allow that, but no permissions is an implicit deny
permission. If you ever see that always check the advanced permission
properties where there may be permissions for the user/group. --- Steve

Keep in mind than an explicit allow will override an inherited deny, and it
is possible to configure permissions that way where the inherited deny box
will be checked and grayed and you can still check allow. --- Steve
