How can I grant a user security permissions to all subfolders and files.

I have added a User to a Shared Folder on our server, but they still don't have access to any of the subfolders or files, so how do I give them access without going through every folder & file and adding them individually.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
