First of all there are some stuff you should understand:

1- Shared Permission only applies on users that access the computer from a network and thus will never protect your files from ppl who have physical access to your pc.

2- Shared Permission could be applied on any file system (FAT or NTFS)

3- NTFS Permission applies to both Local and Network Users

4- we should have NTFS partitions to be able to use NTFS partition

5- NTFS Permissions are more granular, meaning that you can set much more advanced persmissions using NTFS Permissions

6- If a user access a folder from a Network and you have set on that folder both FAT and NTFS permission the most restrictive of them both will get applied, that why it is much easier to set NTFS permissions once (and protect the folder from local and network access) and then when you share the folder only set the Shared permission as Everyone Full Control beeing sure that the NTFS Permission will be the one that will be applied since it is the most restrictive.


Hope this Helps.


Best Regards
