View Full Version : [ubuntu] folder permission ---

January 27th, 2009, 09:22 AM
When I right click a folder and open the properties page of a folder and view the permission level for the folder, one of the choices given is ---.
I wonder what permission level would that be.
Can someone please explain?

It would be all access denied. rwx is read, write, execute; so everything would be allowed. r-- for example would be read only. Replacing one of those with a hyphen denies that permission. Thus --- is no permission to do anything at all.
