Set the permissions of new files and folders

This window will only show for plugins that create new files or directories. Currently the Automatically Copy, Automatically Sort and Automatically Unzip plugins support this page. Use it to set the permissions of those new files. You have the following three choices:

Allow Everyone to access these files
Select this option to allow anyone to access new files and directories created by this task.

Inherit the security attributes from the containing folder
If you select this option, all new files and directories will use the permission settings of their parent directories.

Tip: using groups

Using Groups

You can also use group names such as "Everyone" and "Power Users".
Note that these groupnames must be in the language of your operating system.

Allow these users full access
Enter one or more users or groups that will have full access to the created files.
