I recently migrated a bunch of files from a windows partition to a linux partition; these all became ownership of root, allowing no other users to access to the files. Is there a way to CHMOD these directories, sub-directories, and files without having to go through every single folder and file? I'm looking at at least 500 folders with 10,000 files... surely there must be a more efficient way of doing this.
Does anyone know how? All the references I have read explain CHMOD only by giving examples with individual files. Thanks!
