It seems many people found the post entitled “Resetting NTFS files security and permission in Windows 7” very useful, however many were having problems executing the steps properly.
For this reason, I made a small graphical utility to achieve this task:
This utility needs administrator privilege in order to run. Once you run it, it will elevate itself.
To use it, first click on “Choose folder” to select the folder you want to reset permissions then press “GO” to proceed.
Sometimes it is necessary to take ownership of the files before resetting their permission. For that reason please check the “Take ownership” option.
