My external hdd was not viewable by me so this lets you set the permissions bulk style.

>I needed to change the owner of my files and change the permissions recursively. First off I opened the command prompt as administrator. I don't know if this helps, but I did it anyways. Then I did these two commands that acted recursively.

TAKEOWN /R /F directory
CACLS *.* /T /e /p username:f

And finished.

I used this once, haven't had to use it again.

Fortunately I do not have to use windows at the moment.
