SID Reg key within Access Control Settings (W2K)

  BBez 23:09 29 Jan 2003

When I view Security Tab under a slave drive (d:\), I have a "transparent" user icon with a SID entry which has full control permission set on drive. The SID No. is S-1-5-21-823518204-842925246-1343024091-1000 (All Users?). Only this drive has the displayed SID since a reformat and reinstall of Windows 2000 Pro on my master drive (c:\). The slave drive was present on this system under the previous 2000 installation before format. Is this normal?
Also is it safe to delete this users permission for my slave drive?

After readin a few articles on it... I believe its not a problem. A security identifier (SID) is a unique value of variable length that is used to identify a security principal or security group in Windows 2000

Its part of the Windows 2000 NTFS File Encryption, and Windows NT and Windows 2000 Protected Storage etc

If its not a problem it may be best to leave it. But I am willing to stand corrected on this.

thanks for the response AndySD. The links helped out and I believe that it is safe to remove this entry as it is possibly from the previous installation....
