I have some USB hard drives. Up to now I used them formatted in fat32.
Because of the new git version that does not work properly on fat32
drives, I decided to format my disks in ntfs.
Following advices on this list, I removed all default users from root
dir of the USB drives and left only Everyone with full control.
I want to be able to read/write on these USB disks from any computer,
from Windows or Cygwin. Nothing has to be protected.
I expected all new files would get full control for Everyone and no
other permissions. Unfortunately that is true only from Windows, not
$ touch foo
Domain Users = Read
MySelf = Read/Write
Everybody = Read
But I would like only Everybody = Full control.
$ mkdir bar
gives "permissions are not in the right order" when I right click from
Windows on bar and click on security tab.
How can I have all files on these drives with only 1 user, i.e.
Everyone with full control so that I am sure I can read/write the data
from any computer?
