Sorry for the 'philosophical discussion', you did ask why.

Yes, you just need to add an owner and the right inheritances to the files or folders and files.

The Windows command line utility "icacls.exe" will allow you to mass update permissions. This utility should be in your Win 7 "Windows/System32" folder. You will have to research the exact syntax to use in your case.

"SetACL" is a commercial utility that reports to have a way around the 260 character path+filename limit, if that is an issue.
