    We have an old Windows Server 2008 file server. We are having all kinds of issues with the NTFS permissions.

    I have tried to take ownership of the folders but it only traverses so far down the folder structure. I am a domain admin and I can't even add a users to folders.

    Other steps I have taken:
    1. Tried taking ownership though the command line interface with <takeown>. It will only go far down in the folder structure.
    2. tried using the <icacls> command to add users but again that would only go so far down the folder structure. Same folders would work but other won't.
    My question is this there a way or an app that will repair or strip away the NTFS permissions from these folders?

    Correction the title of this tread should have been "Removing ALL NTFS Permissions" oops....
