Using the Access Explorer permission wizard

The Access Explorer Permission Wizard helps you manipulate explicit permissions and/or group memberships for Access Explorer accounts, computers, and/or resource groups.

The Access Explorer Permission Wizard is available only when an Access Explorer account, computer, and/or resource group is selected. The Permission Wizard supports multiple-selection. The Permission Wizard is not available if you select an Access Explorer result, such as a folder or file. In these cases, use the standard NTFS module functions, such as Grant, Modify, or Delete.

You can use the functions available in the NTFS Security module to make changes to permissions on a folder or file. If you want to make changes to an Access Explorer object, such as a deleting all permissions on an account on a specific computer, it is recommended that you use the Permissions Wizard.

If you want to extend the NTFS functionality to Access Explorer objects, select the Allow operations to be performed directly on Enterprise Objects check box on the Access Explorer tab in the Options dialog box. See Setting options for Access Explorer.
