    Is there any way to globally change the settings?

    You can right click on each HDD and do it from there, instead of from a folder. It will apply it to the entire drive.:toast:

    I wish it were that easy. I've tried that already. For example... I wanted to share something in my program files folder, but when I tried to apply the security policy to drive c:, it said access was denied to the program files folder, so it didn't apply the settings to the folder that was in the program files folder...

    I believe you have to take ownership of the entire drive first, and you probably have to turn of UAC.

    You can take ownership on in the Advanced button.
