Hello Dthuo,

NTFS is a file system in any operating system and using this we can access the data up to the memory of the free space present in the NTFS file.

Generally NTFS files are used in any operating systems as they provide ease of use and very simple and provides additional features like the security provided to the files and folders in the form of permissions.

When the permissions are set on the folder then suddenly there is change in access of the rights for the following folders which we are meant to set for the NTFS file.

By default the files and folders restricts the access to unwanted data from folders and files by providing the specific permissions to the users we provide to access the files present in the folder.

Thank you.
