Hello, I am thinking about script, which will get users from csv file, and remove them ACLs and leave only system, and administrator.

$DomainName = "xxx"
 
Import-CSV "C:\test.csv" | %{
  # Get the folder
  $Folder = Get-Item $_.ColumnA

$ACL = Get-ACL $Folder

xxxxxxx

$ACL.AddAccessRule($AccessRule)

Set-ACL $NewFullName -AclObject $ACL

}



Any ideas?

to integrate it with reading folders from file, simply use the following:

foreach ($folder in Get-Content "c:\temp\folders.csv")
{

$ACL = Get-Acl -Path $folder

}
