Script to remove NTFS permissions from shares

Hello,
I have excel file to specify what permissions I want to remove on what folders.
I would like to have a script that would remove those specified permissions on those folders. The script should read the excel file with the permissions that I need to remove. Please help. Thank you so much.

Here is the columns in the excel file that script would read:

UNCPath      IdentityReference

I assume you mean which users to remove, if not, if you want to change a users permissions you would have to do it in multiple steps (as best as I know). Assuming you mean remove users and you file has 2 columns, one with unc path and one with user-names, run this
for /F "skip=1 tokens=1-2 delims=," %%i in (C:\Utils\Your-File.csv) do (
icacls %%i /remove:g your-domain\%%j /T
)
/remove:g removes all granted permissions for the user

Hi,
Sorry for the delay. I am not very familiar with the powershell. If you could please post entire script that I can test out and remove users and groups from folders. I am not sure how to run it.

THank you so much!

this is not a powershell scrip it is a regular batch script. Copy and paste the code into a file and save it with a name like RemovePermissions.bat then from a comamnd prompt type RemovePermissions and enter to run it.

However as mentioned in my earlier comment your excel file will need to have two sets of data for instance
\\server1\share1, bob
\\server1\share1, joan
\\server2\share3\, adam

then you will need a second file to add the permissions you want for instance
\\server1\share1, bob, F
\\server1\share1, joan, RX
\\server2\share3\, adam, R

so do you know which server and which shares you want to remove permissions from and then do you know what permissions you want to add and for which users?
