You are not suggesting that the OP change that setting, reboot, run his
enumeration of directory permissions, change the setting back again and
reboot once more?
I think that LastAccessDate is rather useless and I have always turned
it off, but it's not something that can be done on the fly.
Just because a file hasn't been accessed in a period doesn't necessarily
mean it can be deleted. It may well still have documentary/evidentiary
value. Conversely, because the LastAccessdate will be touched by all
sorts of innocuous actions, it does rarely reflect actual usage.
