A) Take control over the media, and grand him Read and execute permission

B) Format the media, and grant him Read and execute permission

C) Change the media to dynamic state, and grant him Read and execute permission

    Actually now that i think about it i think answer is E) You cannot do this. Because i remember reading somewhere that removable media cannot be formatted as NTFS, is this correct?

    Hmmm, I actually do think you can do this and I believe the answer is A. Because I believe by default removable media formatted as NTFS is only granted access to the owner/Administrator.

    I could be wrong, but I would go with A if I had a gun to my head. icon_lol.gif

    Defiantly E. Removable media cannot be formatted using the NTFS format. If you believe its wrong try it on any removable media.

    The answer is A!
    I'm using Techskills to study for this exam and this question is on the testprep.
    Also just purchased my 2nd thumb drive ie.. usb removable media and formatted it with NTFS through Disk Management just to see if it would work.
    Now floppies and cd's cannot be formatted in NTFS so I agree with you there but answer is absolutely AAAA icon_exclaim.gif

    I noticed how the question says, "with NTFS on it" which means its already on the removable media, which technically has to eliminate E as a answer choice, so A would be the best answer... because they said its already on the media, NTFS... That was kinda tricky though, but you have to read question well i guess.

    Its E. I have already taken my test and I recieved a 100% on 3 catagories out of the 5. The other two catagories I scored within the strong area. I scored a 949 overall. If you want to go with A go right ahead. However I believe my answer to be correct..
