Yes, if what you're asking for is to manipulate or set NTFS permissions on directories/folders? use Active Directory Services Interface (ADSI) with extreme caution and subsequent to a full backup of your server. Check out Microsoft's Knowledge Base Article Q279682 for more details.

Hope this provided the information you needed.
Take care,
