I would like to have a script or free utility that can restore ACE (Access Control Entries)on windows Folder from specific date.
I do not need to restore the folder, but just the ACE (users and groups that had permissions to it)

Thank you

set up a scheduled task to backup the ACLs:

icacls c:\windows\* /save AclFile /T
- Will save the ACLs for all files under c:\windows
  and its subdirectories to AclFile.

use the file to restore:
icacls c:\windows\ /restore AclFile
- Will restore the Acls for every file within
  AclFile that exists in c:\windows and its subdirectories.
