I want to perform Sync operation with network folder or shared folder. Before performing the sync, I want to check all the permissions with that folder. Actually there are 13 permissions in windows NTFS folder.
First I need to perform below tasks one by one.
List out all the 13 permissions of the windows share folder and store it in List<T>.
The NTFS 13 permissions list:
• Traverse folder / execute file
• List folder / read data
• Read attributes
• Read extended attributes
• Create files / Write data
• Create folders / append data
• Write attributes
• write extended attributes
• Delete subfolders and files
• Delete
• Read permissions
• Change permissions
• Take ownership
After that based on the permissions only I need to start the Sync.
I tried with below code but I got only 5 permissions “Write, Read, Full control, Create, Delete”

Any one please tell me possible solution for doing this functionality.

What I have tried:

string path = @"C:\ExportFolder";
string NtAccountName = @"MyDomain\MyUserOrGroup";

DirectoryInfo di = new DirectoryInfo(path);
DirectorySecurity acl = di.GetAccessControl(AccessControlSections.All);
AuthorizationRuleCollection rules = acl.GetAccessRules(true, true, typeof(NTAccount));

//Go through the rules returned from the DirectorySecurity
foreach (AuthorizationRule rule in rules)
    //If we find one that matches the identity we are looking for
    if (rule.IdentityReference.Value.Equals(NtAccountName, StringComparison.CurrentCultureIgnoreCase))
        var filesystemAccessRule = (FileSystemAccessRule)rule;

        //Cast to a FileSystemAccessRule to check for access rights
        if ((filesystemAccessRule.FileSystemRights & FileSystemRights.WriteData) > 0 && filesystemAccessRule.AccessControlType != AccessControlType.Deny)
            Console.WriteLine(string.Format("{0} has write access to {1}", NtAccountName, path));
            Console.WriteLine(string.Format("{0} does not have write access to {1}", NtAccountName, path));

Do you get the same number of rules for folder on the desktop, or other locations ?

Just dump everything ... then start filtering. I don't think you know what you're retrieving.
