Setting NTFS Permissions

The most common way to set permissions is to use Windows Explorer.

To set permissions for an object:

  1. In Windows Explorer, right-click a file, folder or volume and choose Properties from the context menu. The Properties dialog box appears.
  2. Click the Security tab.
  3. Under Group or user names, select or add a group or user.
  4. At the bottom, allow or deny one of the available permissions.
