HI,
i have created a few security groups in my AD
group 1
group 2
group 3
group 4
i need to apply permissions to m sublfolders with the security groups i have created.
my folder struture is like this
c:\main folder\subfolder\inner sub\
the main folder should have read access to all the users in my domain
the subfolder has the permission same as the main folder
the inner sub also has only read rights for all my users .
inside the inner sub i have 10 folder each with different rights
say folder 1 - only group 1 and group 2 has read access an group 3 and 4 has write access.
say folder 1 - only group 2 and group 4 has read access an group 1 and 3 has write access.

There are two free utilities from Microsoft which will do this for you:
XCACLS.EXE
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/318754

or SUBINACL.EXE:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/265360/en-us
http://www.analogduck.com/main/subinacl#Examples

XCACLS
============================================
So first grant them full permissions by using...
xcacls C:\<path>\*.* /G Group1:F /E

permisisons:
 R  Read
 C  Change (write)
 F  Full control
 P  Change Permissions (Special access)
 O  Take Ownership (Special access)
 X  EXecute (Special access)
 E  REad (Special access)
 W  Write (Special access)
 D  Delete (Special access)

SUBINACL
====================================================
In this example is to grant Domain1\User1 the PACEs of Execute and Take Ownership on the file C:\Test.txt. Type the following at the command line:

subinacl /file C:\TEST.TXT /grant=domain1\user1=xo

PACE       Description
F       Full Control
C       Change
R       Read
P       Change Permissions
O       Take Ownership
X       eXecute
E       Read eXecute
W       Write
D       Delete

The following has info on both:

It is pretty easy to use. Give it a try and post back if you have any issues
