IssueThis article provides details on the difference between Read & Execute and List Folder Contents in the Stealthbit application in Data Access Governance (DAG)
1)      List Folder Contents – this basic level check box assigns  “special permissions” as outlined below

2)      List folder / read data is one of those special permissions.

Second, list folder contents and read & execute have the same “special permissions”.  So, they’re very similar.  However, this TechNet article explains how they’re inherited differently:
Although List Folder Contents and Read & Execute appear to have the same special permissions, these permissions are inherited differently. List Folder Contents is inherited by folders but not files, and it should only appear when you view folder permissions. Read & Execute is inherited by both files and folders, and it is always present when you view file or folder permissions.
