I will be using the Extended Change Access Control List tool (Xcacls.exe) application to perform this task and after looking at the tool I can apply changes to files and folders easily.
My goal is for any application installed in windows 7 on any user to have the modify permission by default. I understand that I can use xcacls command on files and folders and I thought about using the command on the program files directory and that would work on most applications but for other cases when an application is stored in the c drive itself, how would I deal whith these application?
Could I add the modify (change in xcacls) to all folders in the C drive except the folders I know will be there from the beggining and are sensitive like Windows directory? Any help will be appreciated. Thank You.
