cacls and subdirectories


J

Hello Group:

(Windows XP Pro, simple file sharing disabled).

In my search for solutions to some file sharing problems, I thought
I'd try using cacls to redo the ACLs in a folder (c:\dnld).

I used the following syntax from within the directory I wanted to
modify (using cmd.exe:)

cacls *.* /t /g Everyone:F

Now each of the subfolders (a gazillion) in the c:\dnld folder is
marked "do not share this folder" even though the main folder is
shared.
I don't know what happened, but perhaps more importantly, I don't know
how to reverse it. I could change the share of each subfolder, but I
have life expectancy issues considering how long that would take.

I'd really appreciate some advice.

Jack
