    I can fix them manually but its ridiculous half are correct and half arn't and im not going to go through 1Tb of files...

    How do I fix this on a system wide basis!?

    Cheers!

    Edit: BTW, they are all folders containing patches, save games, etc lol!

    Try this: Disk Utility>Select Drive NAME (NOT ACTUAL DRIVE)>Select Repair Permissions.

    You can set permission to be ignored on a whole (non-system) volume.

    Right click on the drive in Finder > 'Get Info'. Under 'Sharing and Permissions', tick 'Ignore ownership on this volume'.

    Be aware that this can cause some software to fail if specific permissions are required by it.
