Scenario / Questions
I’m trying to use Powershell to change owner of a folder, recursively.
I’m basically using this code:
$acct1 = New-Object System.Security.Principal.NTAccount('DOMAIN\Enterprise Admins') $profilefolder = Get-Item MyFolder $acl1 = $profilefolder.GetAccessControl() $acl1.SetOwner($acct1) set-acl -aclobject $acl1 -path MyFolder
This will change ownership at the first level, but not for any subfolders or files. Is there a way to extend the scope to all content of
Find below all possible solutions or suggestions for the above questions..
The takeown command does exactly what you’re trying to do. It’s a regular windows utility.
This snippet will apply ownership to the current user, but you can set it to any user you want.
takeown /f "c:\folder\subfolder" /r
If you run into trouble make sure you are running the cmd/powershell window with administrator permissions. Same applies to the other powershell specific answer.
The Set-ACL cmdlet will take the path parameter from the pipe, so the recommended way is to pipe the contents of a directory to set the owner on each item:
dir -r c:\Users\goyuix\temp | set-acl -aclobject $acl1
That will recursively set the owner on all the folders/files in the temp directory in my profile.
