SetAccessRuleProtection and Inherited NTFS Permissions

Posted by Gaurav Khanna on July 12, 2005

Continuing from my last post, the same can be achieved using SetAccessRuleProtection as shown below:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;
using System.Security.AccessControl;
using System.IO;
using System.Security.Principal;

namespace AceInheritRemove
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            // Get the object and its SecDescp 
            DirectoryInfo dir = new DirectoryInfo("e:\\kgk\\test");
            DirectorySecurity sec = dir.GetAccessControl(AccessControlSections.All);

            sec.SetAccessRuleProtection(true, false);

            // Create a child folder with the explicit permissions only... 
            DirectoryInfo info2 = new DirectoryInfo("e:\\kgk\\Test\\Child");
