Set Folder permissions for whole drive



SKS

I shall much appreciate if somebody can let me know how to set folder
permissions globally for all folders and files on any selected drive. I have
5 additional drives on one machine and during a reinstall of the OS seem to
have lost the Security settings (Groups and User permissions). Taking
ownership restored access. However, each folder (and sub-folders) all seem
to have different allowed Groups and User permission setting.

I need to be able to set the Groups and Users settings in any selected
drives "Properties>Security=Groups and user names:" to all read the same. I
can do this going into each folder and sub-folder one by one too, but was
wondering if it could be done globally.

Thanks in advance for any tips.

Just check in Security\Permissions\where it reads "Replace permission
entries in all secondary objects with those included here etc........... "
The permissions you set on the main folder or drive will be inherited to all
subfolders. on the additional drives you can remove user groups in the
Security tab and add them again before you exit... that will set default
permission settings automatically.....

Regards.

Thanks a lot for pointing that out! I did not even realize the setting panel
was right there even though I went into it to reset the ownership!

I really appreciate your response. It has considerably eased what would
otherwise be a pretty time-consuming task.

Regards and thanks again.
