SUBINACL.exe – Windows CMD Command

Display or modify Access Control Entries (ACEs) for file and folder Permissions, Ownership and Domain.

Access Control Lists apply only to files stored on an NTFS formatted drive, each ACL determines which users (or groups of users) can read or edit the file. When a new file is created it normally inherits ACL’s from the folder where it was created.

SUBINACL is a powerful command that can do everything cacls and xcacls can do and more besides.

When running subinacl against a subfolder, its important to include the trailing backslash, (or \*.*) if this is missed out subinacl will interpret the path as a filename and search the entire drive for it, this can be very slow!


Save permissions to a log file:
subinacl /noverbose /nostatistic /outputlog=SS64.log /subdirectories "C:\Program Files\My Folder\*.*" /display

Restore Permissions from a log file:
subinacl /nostatistic /playfile SS64.log

Change owner :
subinacl /file C:\demofile.doc /setowner=SS64Dom\AliceT
