  2. Hello Praveen,

    Full Control. Users can do anything to the file, including taking ownership
    of it. It is recommended that you grant this level of access only to administrators.


    Modify. Users can view and modify files and file properties, including deleting
    and adding files to a directory or file properties to a file. Users cannot
    take ownership or change permissions on the file.

    Best regards

  3. Assuming this question is in regards to NTFS permissions, then the biggest
    difference is the ability to take ownership of files.
