Update Folder Security

This post is not about System Center, instead it is about updating adding permissions to folders. This script will read all folders in a folder and give the user with the same userID as the foldername permissions. I combine a script from Microsoft, xcacls.vbs, with my own script to attain this. More information about Xcacls.vbs here. Download my script here. Xcacls.vbs is a great script with a lot of functions and options.
