    Permissions on Hard Drive

    I want to set permissions for specific folders on my hard drive. Here is my
    question....If I set the permissions, and then remove my hard drive and put
    it in another computer with the data intact, will my permissions settings
    stick ? What if the other computer is using another version of windows ?
    Thanks.
