Have a folder called 2012. Someone modified the permissions and gave ownership to all sub folders and files to someone that is no longer employed. Problem is I deleted the user from AD. I gave permissions to administrators on the root and then added System and Domain admins back to full control and then tried to replicate to all child objects (There are a ton of files and folders) Problem is I get an access denied because there is no owner on any of the folders and files below because it was deleted from AD. Is there a way to change those permissions without having to touch each and every file/folder etc from top to bottom. That could take days!
Server is 2008 R2 I am hoping someone has a magic tool or a wand.
