Hi

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:
Administrators(ERIC\Administrators)
CREATOR OWNER
Everyone
Owner(Eric\Owner)
SYSTEM
Users(ERIC\Users)
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.

Hi

Sorry I don't see the relevance of these to my problem Dai. I am referring to User Permissions not Network File, Folder, Printer etc sharing.

one of the differences between home and pro is the way permissions are set
those were the best i could find on a search explaining it
if you go into the control panel and click on user and see what you can set there
i have not had xp on the computer since last year,so i cannot get in to check
someone will post a better explanation when they come online

Hi Dai

Sorry, I didn't pick up your response even though I thought I was "watching" this post.

This hasn't caused me a problem but I did want to try and ensure my permissions were "safe" and consistent; they do not appear to be so at the moment.
