Set Owner recursively

I have been reading the Scripting Guy's post on setting file ownership for a specific user.

His code is:

$objUser = New-Object System.Security.Principal.NTAccount("fabrikam", "kenmyer")
$objFile = Get-Acl C:\Scripts\Test.txt
$objFile.SetOwner($objUser)
Set-Acl -aclobject $objFile -path C:\Scripts\Test.txt

Open in new window


This works great for a specific folder. I am trying to get it to work recursively so that all subfolders and files have the same specified owner.

How can this be done?

Try using the code given in link below

$acct1 = New-Object System.Security.Principal.NTAccount("fabrikam", "kenmyer")
$profilefolder = Get-Item MyFolder
$acl1 = $profilefolder.GetAccessControl()
$acl1.SetOwner($acct1)
dir -r c:\Users\goyuix\temp | set-acl -aclobject $acl1
