What is TRUE about NTFS and share permissions on a Windows 11 workstation?

A NTFS permissions can be applied at the file or folder level, and share permissions can only be applied at the folder level.

While both NTFS and share permissions can be applied to volumes and folders, only NTFS permissions can be applied to individual files. Only when a network is used to access the resource are share permissions effective. Whether someone accesses the resource locally or over a network, NTFS permissions are still effective. NTFS permissions are inherited from a parent folder. There is no inheritance for share permissions.
