NTFS is the preferred file system in part because it supports much larger hard disks and a higher level of reliability. In addition, NTFS offers better security through permissions and encryption.  In this lesson, a permission is defined as the type of access that is granted to an object, such as NTFS files and folders. When files and folders are created on an NTFS volume, a security descriptor known as an Access Control List (ACL) is created. This descriptor includes information that controls which users and groups can access the file or folder, as well as what type of access is granted to particular users and groups. Each assignment of permissions to a user or group is represented as an access control entry (ACE).
