the subfolder has the permission same as the main folder
the inner sub also has only read rights for all my users .
inside the inner sub i have 10 folder each with different rights
say folder 1 - only group 1 and group 2 has read access an group 3 and 4 has write access.

There are two free utilities from Microsoft which will do this for you:
XCACLS.EXE
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/318754

or SUBINACL.EXE:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/265360/en-us
http://www.analogduck.com/main/subinacl#Examples

XCACLS
============================================
So first grant them full permissions by using...
xcacls C:\<path>\*.* /G Group1:F /E

permisisons:
 R  Read
 C  Change (write)
 F  Full control
 P  Change Permissions (Special access)
 O  Take Ownership (Special access)
 X  EXecute (Special access)
 E  REad (Special access)
 W  Write (Special access)
 D  Delete (Special access)

SUBINACL
====================================================
In this example is to grant Domain1\User1 the PACEs of Execute and Take Ownership on the file C:\Test.txt. Type the following at the command line:

subinacl /file C:\TEST.TXT /grant=domain1\user1=xo

PACE       Description
F       Full Control
C       Change
R       Read
P       Change Permissions
O       Take Ownership
X       eXecute
E       Read eXecute
W       Write
D       Delete

The following has info on both:

It is pretty easy to use. Give it a try and post back if you have any issues
