I scanned our file server for huge files and encountered several files and folders (450+ folders 30K+ files) that have not the [local-fileserver]localadministrator account assigned. Is there a way to push these administrator rights trough a folder top-down, but respecting the rights already present in the folders and files below. So how to set administrator rights on files and folders without harming the current rights. [/local-fileserver]
