hi there,

I have a folder which contains many folders and files.  At the moment I cannot access these files as it is saying access denied, I know that I can go into every foldr and change the owner permissions and go through the long laborious process of doing this for every folder but my question is, is there are away that I can apply a permission that sticks for all the folders and files within that main folder thus saving me a whole load of time...?

Many thanks

Phil

sure, on the ownership tab there is a checkbox at the bottom that says 'replace on subcontainers and objects'  that will handle the ownership issue.

for the NTFS permissions, go to the security tab, click advanced, select the user/group and click edit,,, then take notice of the 'apply onto' dropdown list....choose the apply onto option that you need.
