    I am having an issue changing file permissions on files that have been moved. I have been able to run the script with admin permissions when using the icals command, however, the command is not available on all the PC's i need to use the script on. Below is what I have so far.

    What SHOULD be happening is:
    1. The script looks for any files in C:\\Pictures\Camera Roll\
    2. If files are found, move the files to C:\Recordings\\ on the local PC
    2a. I the C:\Recordings\ folder does not exist, it is created
    3. Change the permissions by adding a security group. Should be recursive to all files and folders in C:\Recordings

    $users = Get-ChildItem C:\Users
    $Recordings = "C:\Recordings\"
    $user = "EDU\Sec_Consult_Recordings" .
    $Rights = "Read, ReadAndExecute, Write, Modify, ListDirectory" 
    $InheritSettings = "Containerinherit, ObjectInherit" 
    $PropogationSettings = "InheritOnly" 
    $RuleType = "Allow"
    Get-ChildItem $Recordings -Recurse | Where-Object {($_.Name -Like "WIN*" -and $_.LastWriteTime -lt (Get-Date).AddDays(-14))}
    foreach ($user in $users){
    $folder = "$($user.fullname)\Pictures\Camera Roll\*"
    $UserPath = "C:\Recordings\" + $user.Name
    Write-Output $UserPath
       If (Test-Path $folder) {
       If (Test-Path $UserPath){Move-Item -Path $folder -Destination $UserPath} 
       else {
         new-item -itemType Directory -Force -Path $UserPath
         Move-Item -Path $folder -Destination  $UserPath
    $acl = Get-Acl $UserPath
    $perm = $user, $Rights, $InheritSettings, $PropogationSettings, $RuleType
    $rule = New-Object -TypeName System.Security.AccessControl.FileSystemAccessRule -ArgumentList $perm
    $acl | Set-Acl -Path $path
    #icacls $UserPath /setowner Sec_Consult_Recordings /q /c /t
    #icacls $UserPath /grant Sec_Consult_Recordings:F /q /c /t

    So, it's a little hard to troubleshoot just based on reading your code. Any error messages? You indicate what it should do, but not what it actually does...?
