You need to determine the effective permissions on the parent folder.

Here's a blog that explains how to do that in detail . . . if you have any questions about it please feel free to post so I can explain further:

You need to use FileSystemAccessRule Class.

Take a look at the example in this page:

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Make sure you have using System.Linq;

Also, if you were to hit ctrl + period over rule or authorizationRules it would prompt you to add the object.

Did you add the entire function?


private static FileSystemAccessRule[] GetAccessRulesArray(string userName, string path) {  
  // get all access rules for the path - this works for a directory path as well as a file path    AuthorizationRuleCollection authorizationRules = (new FileInfo(path)).GetAccessControl().GetAccessRules(true, true, typeof(SecurityIdentifier));     

// get the user's sids    
string[] sids = GetSecurityIdentifierArray(userName);     

// get the access rules filtered by the user's sids    
return (from rule in authorizationRules.Cast<FileSystemAccessRule>()            where sids.Contains(rule.IdentityReference.Value)            select rule).ToArray();
}

ged325- Thank You ,The function is working fine but when I execute this application in a workgroup computer it is throwing error since it is not in the domain. How do I change the same below method to work in work group computers ?

private static string[] GetSecurityIdentifierArray(string userName)
        {
            // connect to the domain
            PrincipalContext pc = new PrincipalContext(ContextType.Domain);

            // search for the domain user
            UserPrincipal user = new UserPrincipal(p
