Microsoft released an updated version of XCACLS, a tool that can help adjust review and modify permissions for files and directories. The new version is available as a Visual Basic script that runs via the Cscript.exe version of the Windows Scripting Host (WSH). The company also released the article "How to use Xcacls.vbs to modify NTFS permissions," which explains the capabilities of the tool, which works with Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, and Windows 2000 Server. You can download a copy of xcacls.vbs at the Microsoft download site.
