But on NTFS, there could be the situation where it's not set and the user has no right to write to a file or create files in the directory. I wrote a little example how to retrieve the effective rights for the user that runs the application (owner of the calling thread or process). Reproducible: Always
Jim, is this something you might be able to take? We currently have all sorts of nasty hacks in the extension manager to verify that we can add files to a directory because this API doesn't work correctly at the moment.
Finally getting back to this.

Created attachment 590254 [details] [diff] [review] patch some last minute cleanup totally broke that last patch. pushed to try, I might try to work up a test as well. since we don't use ntfs on our test slaves it wouldn't run normally but devs would still be able to test.
