NTFS permissions applies to NTFS partitions and permits file level
permissions to be set. NTFS provides a lot of added functionality as
well.
Share permissions is the only security for FAT partitions and only
applies to shared content, it also applies to all subcontent.

You can find some information here,

Subject: Windows Sharing File Permissions

Hi All,

In Windows, there are two places to set shared folder permissions in the
Folder Property Box, on the Security Tab and on the Sharing Tab under
permissions.  What is the difference between these two? Which one has
priority?  Why are there two?

I know this seems like a very basic question but I cannot find good
documentation on this.

Thanks for your help,
