Am I right in thinking share access control permissions are only set at one level? Whereas NTFS are set at every directory level (albeit they can inherit).

And part 2) am I right in thinking if a user or group is NOT listed on share permissions (ACL), regardless of whether they are on NTFS (directory ACL) they cant access data on the directories on that share, i.e. you need to be on both the share and directory ACL?

Both right. Share permissions are for the share, not for the folders below. 2nd is right because the principle behind it is "effective is what is more restrictive"

I assume windows effective permissions feature, i.e.:

Is only taking into consideration NTFS (directory permissions) and completely ignores share permissions?
