help in obtaining NTFS directory permissions

VP
Hi there,

well i am stuck on a problem with regards to obtaining security
permissions on folders. At the moment I have created a simple treeview
example which shows all sub-directories in a tree form for a particular
directory.

Then I wanted to see how the application would handle a
sub-directory(test1) if the current user logged on win2k box didnt have
the permissions to access test1. The application throws an exception
which somethign along the lines of unauthorized access etc. I changed
the permissions for test1 by right clicking and accessing the security
tab.

I did some googling and came across couple of links on NTFS security
permissions in .NET.
http://www.gotdotnet.com/Community/U...f-e0705af065d9
http://weblogs.asp.net/cumpsd/archiv.../08/69403.aspx

My problem is that I am having a hard time understanding those links.
Does anyone have an alternative tutorial that would explain things a
lot clearly interms of say obtaining the current ntfs security
permissisons for a selected folder ?

thanks
