I need to remove a specific user from a network share. Alot of these users are sids or orphans from AD. I want to use powershell to do it.  Can someone setup the code as to what commands I need to do this with?

If you look at http://powershell.com/cs/media/p/2535.aspx, you will see that it is rather complicated to do that (shown by creating a share with setting the permission). You really do not want to rely on ready-to-use tools like subinacls (and (x)cacls) for that purpose?

Thank you! I will look at that.  I am trying to remove the old user (old SIDs), from the shares, is what I am trying to accomplish.  I can de-inherit them but cannot get rid of the orphens (Sids) using powershell.

As shown in that code it isn't easy, so I would not spend much time with solving in PowerShell just for this single purpose. It is different if you use it to learn more about PowerShell, and have similar tasks to accomplish, of course.
