Setting security permissions for entire directory and its contents

Last Modified: 2010-08-05
I have a network share folder that contains a large amount of directories and content (word, excel files etc) that is shared over our domain network. I have found though that some of the folders seem to have different security permissions to other folders causing access denied error messages. Is there a way to reset security permissions for the entire directory (and the folders/files within it) to authenticated domain users allowing full control??

Any help appreciated.
