A technician wants to allow users to backup and restore all the files on their computers, but does not want the users to be able to make changes to the system. How should the technician give users this functionality?
- Grant the users read permissions on all files.
- Give the users administrator rights on their computers.
- Make the users members of a group called Backup Operators.
- Check the Folder is Ready for Archiving box in the properties of each folder.
It is better to grant permissions at group level than individual permissions. This way any member of a group would have the respective permissions to carry out the permitted tasks and allows for a tighter control of what the group members can do in a given environment. It also makes it easier to administer the environment.
