Backup and Restore permissions

This Script/Process is all about backing up permissions & restoring when required.

This was the requirement from one of the projects, as their backup software was not able to take permissions backup, therefore on restoring, permissions were not getting applied.

Thanks to Powershell & Creator of File System Security PowerShell Module 4.0.1 which has come to our rescue 🙂

Here is the process /scripts that will accomplish this task, Download the zip file from below link & extract it.
