Hi,

I am logging as admin, but on some of the subfolders, it says I can only view the security setting, so I go up to parent folder and reset the permission, but those folders still can not be reset, I can not change it.  Please help.  Thanks

Have you tried to "Take Ownership" of the files and then reset the permissions?
