Cheers, just checked that it says owner is still the user of the profile so it all looks good, going to roll it out overnight to a select group of users and see what happens. =D thanks for all your help guys, i've thanked posts!

Pants! It's stopped working, tested it on 1 profile, then all i did was change the profile from d:\profiles\testprofile to d:\profiles\anothertestprofile and it's coming up with
I chanaged the bat file between the 2 runs from Domain admins to DomainAdmins
C:\>CACLS D:\PROFILES\testaccount /E /T /C /G "Domain Admins":F
The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.
C:\>CACLS D:\PROFILES\testaccount /E /T /C /G "DomainAdmins":F
No mapping between account names and security IDs was done.

Just run it on D:\PROFILES. It will percolate through the subfolders. Don't use "DomainAdmins" (with no space) it must be "Domain Admins".

Yeah as Jinnanonnixx says it gives you an access denied message because you are running it too far up the folder tree if you see what I mean. Basically you are adding yourself to the permissions on that folder as it runs, so you have to start from a folder which you ALREADY have full control over otherwise you will be epic denied.
