Powershell files permission question

Hi,

I'm trying to create a powershell script that creates and assigns various permissions to folders/shares.

I'm using the the 'system.security.accesscontrol.filesystemaccessrule' command to assign permissions but I'm unable to find the value for the 'Create folder/append data' permission.

can anyone let me know what value i should use here ***** i can't find a list of potentional values anywhere but I'm probally looking in the wrong place

$Ar = New-Object  system.security.accesscontrol.filesystemaccessrule("Authenticated Users","***************","ObjectInherit", "None", "Allow")
$Acl.SetAccessRule($Ar)

thanks

User AppendData  in your case in place of ***********

Try this to give Create Folder / Append Data permission to the folder c:\testFolder
\-------------------
$folder = "c:\testFoler"
$myGroup = "albg\stftuser"
$acl = Get-Acl $folder

$rule = New-Object System.Security.AccessControl.FileSystemAccessRule("$myGroup", "AppendData", "ContainerInherit, ObjectInherit", "None", "Allow")

$acl.AddAccessRule($rule)
Set-Acl $folder $acl
