Re: How to handle changed user ID

Be careful with any recursive option, it can descend into paths you
really don't want it to go.  If what you need to do is any more
difficult than just taking ownership using the new SID, I can recommend
a program called "subinacl", it's a download from Microsoft.

Not that I know of, no.  A SID will never be reused.
