Description

When a volume is created, the 'Everyone' group is added by default to the security permissions. As a result, these permissions get propagated down to sub-folders as they are created. This causes inconvenience when modifying security permissions on folders, as each folder must be maintained. It is best practice to remove the 'Everyone' group as per Microsoft's recommendation.
