  • Permissions need removing

    Hi,

    A user has set it upon themselves to apply deny permissions to certain folders and documents within their user folder.
    I was able to take ownership of the root folder with view to moving to a FAT stick before replacing and setting back up to how they should be although keep receiving "access denied" messages due to him setting deny permissions on many Word and Excel documents causing the whole process to stop. I was going to remove these manually although there are loads of them.
    Can anyone suggest the easiest way to strip the permissions from everything - root folder, subdirectories word, excel etc within his home folder?

    Thanks!

    Take control -- and apply to child objects. That should remove existing permissions and re-apply ones for you. Then go back into the root and change permissions, enforcing propagation to child objects

        No problem.
        Now deal with the user (any large blunt instrument is acceptable)
