 I hope I am not missing anything, but please tell me if I am doing something incorrectly.

I've inherited a SBS2003 and am consolidating user folders which were all over the  place.
 I put them all under a "d:\users" folder, shared the folder, and gave everyone full control under permissions.  Now, in the individual subfolders, I want to limit access to who has access to what.
 so, on the server, I go to  d:\users\jennifer, rt click, security, and then advanced, then remove all permissions, only adding the user and the respective rights.  This should would on all items and sub folders, shouldnt it?  Does the user need to logout and log back in?  do I need to do a GPUPDATE /Force?
  if I add users later, they get some rights, (not all) by default, and then when I tell it to propogate to child object, the orginal people I added wing up getting NO rights, which then it has to be set back manually.  Seems like the rights dont flow down to the sub folders.  Ive even went so far as to take permission (as administrator) to confirm I have the rights, then assign them accordingly.  
 Are they any OTHER users that need to have rights, such as SYSTEM / CreaterOwner?
 What the heck am I missing?!?!

 Thanks in advance!
