I need a bit of advice on setting permissions on a created directory, i am new to c# and have searched the net but i am really one the wiser, basically i call the following method after the userFolder is created:



The permissions that i want to have on the userFolder is List Folder Contents and Read, i can get the first one with the above code but dont know how to set the Read permission.

I need to have two permission entries for the user that the folder is assigned to which are ReadAndExecute and Read.

Any advice will be greatly appreciated!

Cheers
CODE
  private void FolderPermissions(string rootDir, string userFolder)
    {
      DirectoryInfo dinfo = new DirectoryInfo(rootDir + userFolder);
      DirectorySecurity dSecurity = dinfo.GetAccessControl();
 
      FileSystemAccessRule rule = new FileSystemAccessRule(userName, FileSystemRights.ReadAndExecute,
        InheritanceFlags.ContainerInherit, PropagationFlags.None, AccessControlType.Allow);
 
      dSecurity.SetAccessRule(rule);
      dinfo.SetAccessControl(dSecurity);
    }

Change the line

FileSystemAccessRule rule = new FileSystemAccessRule(userName, FileSystemRights.ReadAndExecute,
        InheritanceFlags.ContainerInherit, PropagationFlags.None, AccessControlType.Allow);

to following.

Regards,
Bruce


FileSystemAccessRule rule = new FileSystemAccessRule(userName, FileSystemRights.ReadAndExecute & FileSystemRights.Read,
        InheritanceFlags.ContainerInherit, PropagationFlags.None, AccessControlType.Allow);

FileSystemAccessRule rule = new FileSystemAccessRule(userName, FileSystemRights.ReadAndExecute & FileSystemRights.Read,
        InheritanceFlags.ContainerInherit, PropagationFlags.None, AccessControlType.Allow);

This does not quite word the Read permission overrids the ReadAndExecute.

On the ACL i need the List Folder Contents, Read allow checkboxes ticked and under the advanced button there is two permission entires needed Read&Execute and Read for the user of the folder.
