How to restore CACLS to default state?
Posted on 2007-11-14
Computer has Windows XP Pro, SP 2 with all updates and two user accounts. One account is ADMIN with administrator status and the other is USER with limited access status. My friend "who knows about computers" and he used CACLS from the command prompt to allow USER full control over a single directory. Now, he wants to change it back and restore USER to admin status also.
He THINKS the command he used was this: cacls PROGRAMNAME /t /e /c /g USER:f
How can we put the permissions back to a default or pre-change state?
