changing permissions on multiple folders at the same time

running Windows 2003 Server.

i have a users folder.  inside the users folder i have about 80 directories.

i need each directory to have security set to only allow the Administrators group and the particular user access to the directory.

is there a way to "batch" assign permissions for all of the directories, or do i have to do it folder by folder?

thanks

Right-click on the folder and choose Sharing and security. change the groups you want to be able to access the folder.

Then click on the advanced tab and then the permissions tab. Edit the settings for the groups there then @ the bottom check Replace permission entries on all child objects with entries shown here that apply to child objects. Click apply then ok.
