When I recently reinstalled Windows XP Pro SP2 I backed up data onto another HDD. Now due to the motherboard only has one connector for PATA, and that HDD and the DVD-RW are on different sides of the case (DVD-RW at the top the HDD at the bottom) I unplugged the HDD to plug in the DVD-RW. So the HDD wasn't connected when Windows XP Pro SP2 was being installed. After install I reconnected the HDD to find all the ownerships still set to some SUID ( Owner: S-1-5-21-602162358-152049171-839522115-1003 ) along with all the permissions with out Administrator or my user name included. Meaning I could read the files but I can't delete or move them. I set the Owner of the Root to Administrators group and the permissions to Administrator with Full Control but it didn't propagate on down to all the subfolders or files. So I need a way to propagate a mass owner change which hopefully will let the permissions to propagate too. Someone said to try the perms.exe file in the Windows 2003 Resource Tool Kit but it's broke. I get the following error when I run perms.exe ...
"perms.exe - Entry Point Not Found"
"The procedure entry point RtReleaseRelativeName could not be located in the dynamic link library ntdll.dll"
Couldn't find jack about it on the 'net. Just stuff for 2k Pro , but this is XP Pro Sp2 and it's fully up to date including MSIE 7. So I am at a loss. I need a tool to set every single folder/subfolder/file to Owner: Administrators (or my username) and Perms giving the Administrators group Full Control so I can selectively move stuff out (most of it, some files stay) with out having to wipe out the entire drive to do so.
Anyone can help? Thanks!
