Fix file permissions in Mac OS X

A few days ago I copied a bunch of files/folders from an external NTFS formatted hard drive to my MacBook. The files where copied ok, but the permissions where messed up.

How did I fix them? With this simple command:

$ chmod -Rv u=rwx,g=rx,o=r username path_to_base_folder

It recursively goes through all files and folders and fix their permissions.
