Regarding File Sharing Permissions, what is difference between Allow unchecked/Deny unchecked, and Allow unchecked/Deny checked?
Posted on 2004-10-14
In Windows XP, if I right click a folder in Windows Explorer and go to "Sharing and Security", and then the "Sharing" Tab, and then "Permissions", I am offered the following choices:
Allow or Deny:
What I don't understand is you can:
Uncheck Allow and Uncheck Deny
Uncheck Allow and Check Deny
What is the difference??? If Allow is unchecked doesn't that imply Deny? I assume there is a finer point I am missing here. Any help is greatly appreciated!
