Bulk permissions to be applied to users home drives?

Mark Galvin

Client's users all have a personal/private 'Home' drive
The folders sit on a DFS file share as \\domain\shares\udata\%username%

File permission are a joke. At the \\domain\shares\udata root the 'Domain Users' group has modify permission to everything. So any user that figures it out can get into other users folder.

I need to:
Remove the root permission
Give each users full permission to just their folder

I do not want to have to do it manually as there are too many.

Any script I can use to do this?
