You can add access or audit rules to the FileSecurity object using the AddAccessRule method. You can remove access or audit rules using the RemoveAccessRule method.

To persist new or changed access or audit rules to a file, use the SetAccessControl or SetAccessControl method. To retrieve access or audit rules from an existing file, use the GetAccessControl or GetAccessControl method.
