Hi,

Would anyone if access rights to folders / files can be assign using one of
the following methods?

- by Group Policy in Active Directory
- by using scripts or batch files

Thanks,
YMan

Tomasz,

I have always liked xcacls better than cacls. But both will work. Just
incase anyone is interested here is some information on xcacls:

And the new 'fix' for xcacls is available. Here is some information on
that:

And, in my HTAs that I have created I tend to use SetACL. Here is some
information on that tool:
