Getting Child objects to inherite permissions from parent folder

CJ27 asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-07

  A Small business network has a shared network drive that all users have access to. The CEO has requested That a folder be created named "Folder1" and only User1, User2, User3 and User4 should have access, but these users should have access to all files created in "Folder1" by all of the users with access. I have restricted access to the "Folder1" and only allowed the above users, however when User 1 creates a file, only user one has access. I need for all files to inherite the permissions of the "Folder1" no matter which user created them. Can Someone help me?
