Use cases for using the CLI to set file and folder security

Contributors

Because you can apply and manage file and folder security locally without involvement from a remote client, you can significantly reduce the time it takes to set bulk security on a large number of files or folders.

You can benefit from using the CLI to set file and folder security in the following use cases:

  • Storage of files in large enterprise environments, such as file storage in home directories

  • Migration of data

  • Change of Windows domain

  • Standardization of file security and audit policies across NTFS file systems
