SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges

If like me you’re wondering what exactly does SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges, this is what I understand of it : SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges( () => { using( var newSite = new SPSite( site.Url ) ) { // your stuff } }); Is equivalent to : using( var newSite = new SPSite( site.Url, site.SystemAccount.Token ) ) { // your stuff } So if this is just to open an elevated privilege SPSite, it will be equivalent.
