    File permissions.

    Is there any way possible to change or add users to the security permissions of a drive or folder if some of the files are open. We have a drive that has over 100,000 files that are accessed frequently. So it would would be hard to take this down while we changed or added permissions. Because there are so many files it takes a long time to change the permissions. Is there any way to calculate how long it would take to change permissions on this number of files?

    Re: File permissions.

    Would the permissions be consistent from one file to the next, folder to folder? I have only done it with XP, but I think it should be possible to apply inherited permissions to subfolders, so that the permissions of the parent folder apply to them and their contents.
    We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public.

    Re: File permissions.

    The files all have the same permissions. I think I have worked it out how I can do it. I will set up a new group and add users to it for that drive.
