Good day all!
I have a Windows 2003 Server R2 SP2 file server that is has a single folder (that I've encountered thus far) that had, on the greater majority of files, its security settings wiped. This means my user(s) can't access many files, and I have to RDP into the server as administrator, and retake ownership of the file. Sometimes after doing that the permissions reappear, other times I have to re-add everyone (including built-in groups like domain admins.)
Does anyone have any thoughts on what might of caused this, and also any method of reclaiming control of all the files in bulk, as opposed to one-by-one? When I try to populate the parent folder's permissions to children objects, it gives an error for all the files I haven't reclaimed ownership of.
