NTFS File Permissions

In addition to the RASH attributes, NTFS supports file and folder level access controls. It is possible to assign granular permissions to individual files to control that may read, change, delete or even print them. Windows NT 4 provides a basic implementation of this principle, limited to assignment of read, write, create and delete permissions. Windows 2000 and XP extend the available permissions much further, including context sensitive permissions for different resources (for example, printers versus files).

NTFS Access Controls

It is important to note that this access control system is a feature of the NTFS file system, not the operating system. If Windows NT is installed on a FAT16 partition, or Windows XP is installed on a FAT32 partition, access control is not available for use. This also means that Windows 95 and 98 do not support these access controls.


Assignment of permissions is a simple process, and only requires three things. First, you must know the target upon which you wish to set the permissions. Second, you must know which user or group you want to assign the permissions to. Third, you must know which permissions you want to assign.
