[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica][SIZE=-1][SIZE=-1]11. You are the administrator at a small network environment with 8 Windows XP clients in a workgroup. You want to create a shared folder located on a FAT32 volume on one of the clients and use share permissions to protect it. When you open the Properties sheet of the folder you are about to share, you notice you are able to share the folder but there is not an option to assign share permissions to individual groups and users. What should you do?[/SIZE][/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica][SIZE=-1][SIZE=-1]a. After sharing the folder, switch to the Security tab and set appropriate permissions.[/SIZE] [SIZE=-1]b. Disable the Use simple file sharing option in Folder Options.[/SIZE] [SIZE=-1]c. Protect the Shared Folder with a password and give this password only to the users that need access.[/SIZE] [SIZE=-1]d. Convert the FAT32 volume to NTFS.

    No, NTFS permissions need NTFS. Share permissions were created long ago in order to provide a bit of security to file shares. Share permissions are basically worthless nowadays. A lot of people, myself included, just give everyone the full control share permission and do whatever needs to be done with NTFS permissions (though you still need to know how they interact for the exam).

    The answer is correct; you do not have those options when using simple file sharing.
