Last Modified: 2018-03-08
I have prepared and tested 4 commands to set permissions on a folder. What I would like to be able to do is combine the commands into a single command but cant get this to work

My commands are below, any idea?
icacls C:\test /grant FS_ABS_ORG:(OI)(CI)(X,RD,RA,REA,WD,AD,WA,WEA,DC,RC)
icacls C:\test\_Secure /inheritance:d
icacls C:\test\_Secure /remove FS_ABS_ORG
icacls C:\test\_Secure /grant FS_ABS_ORG:(OI)RX
