SBS 2008 Shared folder permissions in dissaray

nbcomp asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Hello, I have a SBS 2008 machine that has a shared folder with multiple subfolders and more folders below that. There have been several people in it changing permissions, shares etc. At this point it is such a mess I would really like to start over and reset everything, all folders back to a default setting and start from scratch. If i remove the share from the root folder will it also remove it from all the subfolders? is there a way to force that down? Same with the permissions, is there any way to get a clean slate to start over?

thanks in advance...
