Can anyone tell the difference between "modify" and "write" file system
permission? What can an user do with "modify" permission? What can an user
do with "write" permission?

Write pertains to the ability to create the file.
Modify is Read, Write, Execute, and Delete.

Dear Jerold, if you compare in details: the "write permissions" give you these access in bold: Full Control
Traverse Folder / Execute File
List Folder / Read Data
Read Attributes
Read Extended Attributes
(Create Files / Write Data)
(Create Folders / Append Data)
(Write Attributes)
(Write Extended Attributes)
Delete SubFolders and Files
Delete
Read Permissions
Change Permissions
Take Ownership and the "modifiy permissions" give these access in bold: Full Control
(Traverse Folder / Execute File)
(List Folder / Read Data)
(Read Attributes)
(Read Extended Attributes)
(Create Files / Write Data)
(Create Folders / Append Data)
(Write Attributes)
(Write Extended Attributes)
Delete SubFolders and Files
(Delete)
(Read Permissions)
Change Permissions
Take Ownership So it is clearly different L.Vais WinSysBee Support Team http://www.winsysbee.com

Write pertains to the ability to create the file.
Modify is Read, Write, Execute, and Delete.
