public function RemoveAuditRuleSpecific (

A FileSystemAuditRule object that represents an audit rule to remove from a file or directory.

Exception typeCondition


The rule parameter is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

The RemoveAuditRuleSpecific method removes the specified matching Deny audit rule or the specified matching Allow audit rule from the current FileSystemSecurity object. For example, you can use this method to remove a specified Deny audit rule for a user by passing a FileSystemAuditRule object created using the Deny value, the Failure value, and a user account. When you do this, the RemoveAuditRuleSpecific method removes only a deny rule that specifies the Failure value. It does not remove any deny rules that specify the Success value.
