Comparing security

You can compare permissions of two folders (including their sub-folders) in the NTFS Security module.

Open the NTFS Security module.
Open the Browse tab.
Select Security | Compare Security.
In the Compare Security dialog box, navigate one of the trees and select the folder you want to compare in the left pane. The corresponding folder in the other tree is selected automatically.
The folder permissions are displayed in the right pane. Any differences between the two folders are highlighted in yellow.


Permissions are same with the folder or file in the other tree.


Permissions are different from the folder or file in the other tree, or errors occurred while retrieving permissions.

Highlighted in yellow

The folder or file does not exist in the other tree.

Purging backup files

In the NTFS Security module, you can purge backup files.

Select Security | Purge Backup.
Click OK to purge the files.

Scheduling a backup purge

The Purge Backup Scheduler provides a convenient place in which to create, edit, and delete purge backup jobs.

Select Security | Purge Backup Scheduler.
The Purge Backup Scheduler Task List box lists the currently defined purge backup jobs in ascending alphabetical order by computer name.


Creates a new task.

Select the Create single scheduled task on local machine check box.
NOTE: Only files in the selected folder are deleted; subfolders are not processed.
In the Account box, browse to locate an account under which to run the backup. If you do not enter an account, the backup runs under the local system account.
Click Schedule.


Edits the selected task.


Deletes the selected tasks.

Click Close.

Exporting security

By default, permissions are exported to a report, which you can save, print, or export. You can export permissions on a folder to a Microsoft® Access® 2000 database (.mdb file), a SQLite database, or a delimited file for use with Microsoft Excel®. You also can export a list of tasks, groups, and users. The list of groups or users includes the account name, type of group or user, account SID, account description, when the account last logged on, number of times the account has logged on, and whether the account is disabled, locked, or expired.

The Export Scheduler displays all the current export tasks. You can add, edit, and delete export tasks.
