I am running W2K3 Server and I need to grant multiple users (several hundred) Full control to their individual home folder.  Each person  currently has modify rights.  The path to the folders are \\<Server>\Students\<gradyr>\<student-folder>.   I want to be able to use icacls to modify all of the individual student folders at once.  Can someone please give me the syntax I need to use?  I am horrible at any kind of scripting.
