Recursively reassign owner #

chown -R new_username:new_group directory
:new_group is optional. Especially helpful when, after having imported data from one OS X user account to another, attempting to move files results in them being copied instead, and attempting to move folders results in a password prompt ("Finder requires that you type your password").
