CREATOR OWNER Group?

Hello,

I was wondering what the CREATOR OWNER group is, I haven't really seen it before, so am curious as to what it's function is...

Creator Owner group is a permission set that allows the creator of a document to retain whatever permissions assigned to that directory/sub-directory.

Ok, so if i remove the CREATOR OWNER permission off some iso files, but keep the Everyone and Administrators permission, would that be a problem?

that would be fine. Everyone group covers literally, everyone. Administrator group would cover top level.

Is Everyone group alone sufficient? If I remove ALL other permissions except Everyone, would that be ok? This is just for my data drive...

Yes, especially for Data drives. The Everyone group will automatically add the new SID (secure ID) to the everyone group EVEN after a new format.

So I can go ahead and remove the administrators?

You have the "Everyone" group with full control assigned to Full Parent Directory and Sub Directories? if yes, then sure.

There is no really no reason to remove the Administrator group, unless it's just for your personal reasons.

Well, I mean if I guess the Admin group is there just for show, I guess I should just remove it right?
