In the course of investigating why a programme was not functioning correctly I was requested to check the Security settings for permissions using Safe Mode in Windows XP Home Edition.
Whilst checking these settings I noticed that each Drive Partition of my two HDDs had different settings.
C Drive shows:
All with full permissions
D Drive shows:
Everyone - with full permissions
E, H, I and K Drives show:
Administrators(ERIC\Administrators) - Full Permissions
CREATOR OWNER - Special Permission only
Everyone - Special Permission only
SYSTEM - Full Permissions
Users(ERIC\Users) - Restricted Use (three items checked)
Can anyone explain these settings, confirm whether they are normal and if not what is normal?
I checked my Laptop (One HDD and Partition) and found that it only showed "Everyone" and with Full Permissions.
A link to an explanation of security settings in Windows XP Home would be helpful.
