-Access rights ​to a file/folder are managed by its Owners, and possibly by its Managers. A Manager is a user to whom a file Owner has delegated access rights management. A Manager can then, in the same way as an Owner, define access rights to this file/folder for all users **__except__** for himself (only the Owner of the file/folder can define the Manager'​s access rights).+Access rights ​for a file/folder are managed by its Owners, and possibly by its Managers.

 More than one definition of access rights to a file/folder can exist for a given user if he belongs to more than one group of users. Priority rules among access rights are as follows: More than one definition of access rights to a file/folder can exist for a given user if he belongs to more than one group of users. Priority rules among access rights are as follows:
   * Access rights defined directly on the user prevail over those defined to a group the same user belongs to (user-defined rules are more specific).   * Access rights defined directly on the user prevail over those defined to a group the same user belongs to (user-defined rules are more specific).
-  * Among access rights granted granted by different, the most permissive prevail over the least permissive ones.
