Is there a way to limit the permissions grants on file adapter paths? Currently, $(BTSACCOUNT) is granted full access. My server admin folks frown on that.

If you don't use Full Control then you have to get very specific with the permissions. There is no way to override the default behavior. However, if you wish you can start with the source code for the custom MSBuild task SetUpFileAdapterPaths and modify it to suit your needs.

If you were to create your own custom task, you could use it by overriding the default target DeployFileAdapterPhysicalPaths and pointing to your custom task.

You can also disable the path configuration by including the property ManageFileAdapterPhysicalPaths set to False.
