Recursively change ACL - permissions chmod equivalent?
Posted on 2006-03-21
I moved files to a new computer, and all permissions are broken.
I got the chown utility and changed the owner for all files, but the ACL's are screwed up.
The files I'm trying to recover date since 1992, and have been on many computers since then and now. User names changed, etc. For most files Win XP didn't even know who was the owner...
How do I give permissions to my users recursively. It's 20Gigs of important research data. I need to be able to use it.
cacl's /T only applies to its children, and does not follow the expected recursive functionality.
please, help. Maybe there's a third party tool I can use?
