Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2
When a file is created on a Network File System (NFS) server, a default set of permissions is applied to the file to control access to it. Client for NFS uses the following default permissions for newly created files on NFS shared resources:

Click the File Permissions tab, and select the permissions to use as defaults.
