Hi- we recently rebuilt a directory of shared folders/subfolders/files on a server running Windows 2003 Server software, and needed to change most of the existing permissions.
we created new top level folders, applied certain permissions to them, and then copied old folders into the new top level ones.
in doing so , it seems that for some reason the subfolders and files did not inherit the permissions applied to the top level folder- even though 'apply this to all folders, subfolders, and files.
im hoping there is some way to release (when logged in as administrator) all folders/subfolders/ and files within a certain directory so that i can start over from scratch --or to otherwise make sure that a top level security permission gets applied top to bottom, globally, within that directory.
Any thing to avoid having to apply all the permissions individually.
