Taking ownership of roaming profile folders
I made the Group Policy change so that any new roaming profiles from approx March had the Administrator user added...but the rest are all owned by the...owner so I can't do anything with them until I manually take ownership one by one. Not ideal when there are over 700 folders in this state!
Is there any batch command or utility to set it so the Administrator to get in? Need to archive them off somewhere as quite a few have work saved in (Sigh!) which may be wanted next year.

chown.exe, runs via the command line. It's ace.
It's also used to set the folder name as the owner using:
Which is great for getting FSRM to work. Put this .cmd and chown.exe in the root folder you want to change, and run it.
for /D %%i in (*) do (
chown -r %%i "%%i\*.*"
