Setting ownership

You can set the owner on a file or folder, which is very helpful when setting up home directories. Choose the user or group to be the owner of the file or folder, and choose how to apply the ownership.

Topics:

Using the Browse tab to set ownership

1
Open the NTFS Security module.
2
Open the Browse tab.
4
Select Security | Set Ownership.
5
Type an account in the Owner box or select a group from the list.
NOTE: To grant permissions to the current folder only, clear all check boxes in the Folder Options area. To grant permissions to all files and folders, and recurse through all subfolders, select all check boxes.

Using the Set Ownership task

The Set Ownership task provides a quick way to set ownership on folders and files. For more options, click Switch to Security Explorer Classic (Advanced). See Using the Browse tab to set ownership.

NOTE: The Tasks tab is hidden by default. To display the Tasks tab, select View | Tasks tab.
1
Open the NTFS Security module.
3
Open the Tasks tab, and click Set Ownership.

Modifying permissions

Modify the permissions of groups or users on the selected folder or file. Use this feature for quick changes to accounts displayed in the permissions list. Use the Grant feature to give permissions to accounts that are not displayed in the permissions list. See Granting permissions.

IMPORTANT: You cannot modify inherited permissions directly. Inherited permissions are indicated by Allow (I) in the Type column. To modify these permissions, you must modify the parent object
3
Select Security | Modify Permission.
Click on the Tool Bar, click Modify on the Control Button Bar; or right-click the permissions, and choose Modify Permission.
4
From the Permissions lists, select the permission and how to apply it. The resultant permissions display in the check boxes. If you make changes to the check boxes, the permission type changes to Special Access.

Only apply permissions to objects directly inside this folder (No Propagate)

Select to apply the permissions inside the current folder. Permissions are not propagated down the directory tree.

Include protected objects

Select to modify permissions on the selected account down the directory tree even if a file or folder is protected.
