We are migrating some data away form a 2008R2 server and would like to set some folders to read-only. It would have been easier if we could use share permissions, but in this case these are various sub-folders, as a opposed to the shared folder. So I am guessing I am looking for a script that blocks inheritance, retains the inherited permissions but changes the group granting RW access to users to  only have RO access.
