    Spend the time to figure this out with the DOS FOR command and the ICACLS command. YOU CAN DO IT!
    Experiment in a test directory for a while and you will make it work and have a powerful new tool in your belt.
    1) in the "for" command the %a is the variable.(could be %b or %c etc) If you run this in a .bat file you will have to use %%a (weird quark)
    2) since you borked the permissions you need to do this to reset:

    CD /d E:\Homedrives
    for /D %a in ("*") do icacls "%~fa" /grant:r "MCA\ICT Teachers File Access":(OI)(CI)(IO)(M) "MCA\%~a":(F) SYSTEM:(F) Administrators:(F) /Inheritance:R /C /Q

    This removes inheritance (from E:Homedrives) and explicitly puts then new permissions at the user folder level. These permissions inherit down from there. The "%~fa" is means use the full path name of the directory the "%~a" means just use the folder name (which is the logon name) This assumes that the users folder name is their logon name.
    Good luck!

    Hey guys

    Just to let you know as a quick fix i set the parent permissions on the home driver folder, set everything underneath to inherit then set the user permissions one by one at the user folder level. Next time i will look into doing it with ICACLS.

    Many thanks

    Personal opinion, SetACL is easier to use.
