I have a folder with 70gb data (multiple folders & files inside). To restrict access to this folder, I changed the permissions by doing the following,
Right click on Folder -> Properties -> Security Tab -> Advanced -> Change Permissions -> Edit -> 'Check' Deny -> Apply.

Now to change the permissions back to normal, I followed the same to 'Uncheck' Deny and Apply.
But, only the main folder got its permissions back but all the files & folders are said to be locked.
That means, I have to unlock each & every file and folder (they are in 100's) by setting their permissions which is a horrifying task. I need help in unlocking them to normal at ONE GO. Please do the needful.

How to I unlock my primary folder, including all the sub folders and files inside my primary folder, at one go ?


Thanks in advance.
