Question about a pratice test question.

5. 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?

a. After sharing the folder, switch to the Security tab and set appropriate permissions.
b. Disable the Use simple file sharing option in Folder Options.
c. Protect the Shared Folder with a password and give this password only to the users that need access.
d. Convert the FAT32 volume to NTFS.

Ok, the answer here is (B).

Granted, I knew about this answer but what is confusing me is the fact the file system is FAT32. I thought that you coudn't set permissions unless you used NTFS? Or does this only apply to security?

Someone please help shed some light on my confussion. icon_eek.gif
