Managing permissions with PowerShell is only a bit easier than in VBS or the command line as there are no cmdlets for most day-to-day tasks like getting a permission report or adding permission to an item. PowerShell only offers Get-Acl and Set-Acl but everything in between getting and setting the ACL is missing. This module closes the gap.
You have two options:
- Download the latest release from the releases section.
- Download the module from the PowerShell Gallery: Install-Module -Name NTFSSecurity
Further help can be found in How to install if you face difficulties getting this module installed.
The cmdlets are yet not documented completely so Get-Help will not show help for all the cmdlets. Providing documentation is planned though.
