    Stuck in NT 5 land...
    Hello there,

    I am looking for a way to set the NTFS permissions of my data partition and several other folders on my Windows XP PC using the CACLS utility or something similar.
    I would like to run batch files during the Windows installation to set the permissions.

    I need to set folders/partitions to read-only and prevent executables from running.
    The permissions should apply to all users including admins, with an exception for the backup operator user.
    I've got no clue how to do this from the command line.

    Any suggestions?
