Setting Permissions on Folders

Hi experts,

I am setting up a new file server with an existing file structure. I have setup up groups and applied NTFS permissions on all folders. My dilemma is that I want users to create files/folders within the "Folder 2's" directory but not within the root directory. They are inheriting all permissions from "Folder 1". I am trying to set these permission on about 3,000+ folders. Is there a way of accomplishing this without having to apply it folder by folder? Software? Or maybe a script of some sort?

File Structure

Folder1 - (Only read permission)
        Folder2 -(Create folders, files)
              Folder3

Thanks in advance...

You can restrict the second folder's permissions, and then set the underlying folders to inherent the 'parent' folder's permissions:

However, as you have copied the folders, you may run into something like this:
