I am trying to run xcacls but am getting "The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect" - this is because the names of the files are too long. I am running: xcacls * /e /g administrators:of /t /y. Any ideas how to bypass this?

Your command line is correct and it works fine for me in my tests. Do you have a filename with a strange name that you are using this on?
