Hi Al -
The sharing Tab allows you to set up a basic share and give basic
permissions to the file/folder.
The Security tab allows you to do more granular permissions with more
security features to allow a user or group to the file or folder.
The Security tab will override the shared permissions based on user and or
group defined in the security tab.
Hope this helps,

Subject: Windows Sharing File Permissions
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,
