Windows 7: Can User Access Control Entries be modified in bulk?

Can User Access Control Entries be modified in bulk?

I've moved some files from my old PC to a new one, and find that the UAC entries need to be modified on the new PC.
Are there any software or utilities which can make the changes easier?
( I don't want to make the change file-by-file, as quite a nr of files are involved and each file's UAC change involve quite a number of keystokes)

Thanks....

Go to the highest directory level ...

Create a backup HDD image, BEFORE modifying your permissions.

You can set the permissions on the highest directory level and force them to propagate down the directory structure.
(see example pictures below).



You could write a batch file or script which contains the "icacls" command.
I've never had much luck using it myself though.
