RE: Is there an easy way of programmatically determining -if a file sy-stem NT security?

I'm not sure if I understand your question. But I'll try to help you.

Routine Nt(Zw)QueryVolumeInformationFile has an information class
FileFsAttributeInformation. Related structure's
first member FileSystemAttributes contains bit mask. One bit
definition's name is FILE_PERSISTENT_ACLS which means the file system
stores ACLs on the disk. One only NT file system which has this bit set
is NTFS.

Is this enough to you, or you want additional informations?
