I have a QNAP HDD where i need to change all the permissions and owners. I has a massive amount of folders with files in it. I tried to use WinSCP and login and then right click the top folder and set 777 recurcively but it only changes the folders themselves and some random files. I can't seem to just be able to run this on all folders.
Am i missing something. I downloaded the latest WinSCP from this website and i run it in a win 7 machine and connect to a QNAP nas. I right click the top folder (has all the other folders and files inside) and choose properties and then change the permissions and then also click the "do this recursive"
Any ideas... please :-)
oh more info..
Just to add to this.. I actually do run the permission change and it looks like winSCP does go through every file and it takes forever however when i go and randomly check files and some folders the files are unchanged. Its only the files that stay unchanged not the folders, all the folders get the right permissions.
