I have a USB drive from a fellow employee and I need to copy a directory with many directories underneath it. Is there a way change the permissions on the folders from the top level folder rather than having to change each lower level folder individually?
Because the folder permission was read only and I know how to change that but it's got about 50 folders with in it that all have folders in them and it's seems unless I change each one individually it won't copy them?
If you look at the property sheet for the shared folder and go to the "Security Tab" (NTFS Shares) then click on the "Advanced" button in the window that opens you'll see a checkbox with "Replace permission entries on all child objects with entries shown here that apply to child objects". Just check that box and whatever changes you make thereafter should affect all folders underneath that one.
