Further to Mohamed\'s comment, \"directory\" and \"folder\" might be synonymous only in GUI environments. In a shell or command-line environment, the notion of a folder does not exist.

agree  Alaa Zeineldine: Agree with your answer and your additional note. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Folder. But please note that KudoZ etiquette dicourages one answerer disagreeing with another. It is generally better to let your answer and comments argue for themselves.

صلاحيات الأدلة


Explanation:
تستخدم كلمة صلاحيات فيما يخص صلاحيات الدخول على الملفات والأدلة. فمثلا يوجد مستخدم له صلاحية القراءة فقط وآخر له صلاحية القراءة والكتابة...الخ.

After reading Hazem\'s note, I just want to add that he was right in a way...directory actually is related to command line OSs (like MS-DOS), but folder is the equivalent in the GUI OSs (like Windows), but my argue is there is nothing in the text clarifies whether it is on or the other, so I think we can use the both terms safely.

  -> Many thanks Sabri

neutral  Alaa Zeineldine: Folder and directory are indeed synonyms in this context, specially when referring to file and directory permissions. However, each synonym has a corresponding Arabic term, so it is better to use the corresponding Arabic synonym for each.// See note above

  -> Thank you Alaa, but if the tow terms are used as synonyms, why don't we use the simpler and more readable for the targeted reader?

Explanation:
Mohamed asked a very good question. If folder and directory are synonyms, why not use the translation that would suit the audience?

Because there are two translations available in Arabic, namely مجلد and دليل, which are provided to suit the respective audiences of the terms folder and directory (for example GUI v. shell users). Check the Microsoft glossaries for each term, to see what I mean. You can use the following simple lookup tool below to look up folder and directory and see the result. You can also look up "directory permissions".

That is not to say that using folder is totally incorrect, but following the accepted convention is preferable and poses a smaller risk of an error in context.
