    Changing folder security in bulk

    Hi guys,

    Firstly, I'm disgraced at how long it's been since I've been on Edugeek! No excuse. It's appalling. So, for that, I apologise.

    Secondly, I seem to have made a slight booboo when it comes to adding our new Year 7 pupils this year.
    The first class logged on and had no permission to create or modify folders in their user area. After a little investigation, I've found the security for that folder was set to allow full control to "server/username" instead of "domain/username". My fault entirely.
    Now I have to change all 184 folders to have the right security permissions.

    Is there anything out there that will allow me to do this is bulk easily rather than going through all 184 folders individually?

    Cheers (and sorry again for neglecting Edugeek for so long!)

    I used this to do about 1500 home areas. Put it in a batch file then run it from the root of the folder you store your home areas. You do need to change the domain section to the name of your domain.

    Code:
    for /D %%i in (*) do (
       cacls %%i /T /E /G domain\%%i:c
    )
