Just to clarify on this point, Windows (or rather NTFS) permissions use
full ACLs and so, for each file system object, any number of users
and/or groups can have any number of allow or deny permissions assigned
to them for a range of activities (e.g. read, write, append, delete,
create, execute, traverse, read/write attributes, read/write
permissions, etc.). There's a good article here that begins to explain
it: 'Understanding Windows NTFS Permissions'

NTFS ACLs are similar to (not not identical to) Posix Access Control
Lists that are available for Linux and Unixes.
