Can anyone provide a simple explanation of how Windows XP and NTFS handle permissions/ownership of files and folders? I've disabled simple file sharing, if that matters.
Basically, i have a structure of folders and files on one computer. The permissions for these files and folders relate directly to the users on this computer. If i copy the structure to another computer with different users, how are the permissions changed -- are the original users still authorized, even though they don't exist on the new computer, or are those users completely replaced?
I'm certain objects and inheritance are involved, which is probably the reason why i'm having such a hard time grasping the concept. For some reason OOAnything and DBs give me the hardest time.
Sorry for all the posts recently, but i've been putting off posting for some time looking for my own answers.
