Identify share permissions

Background / Value

8MAN shows both: share permissions as well as NTFS permissions. In the standard view the NTFS permissions are listed.


When considering share permissions and NTFS permissions it is always the lesser permissions that will be relevant to the User. For this reason we recommend always setting share permissions to full access and using NTFS permissions to set more granular permissions.
