Permissions not inheriting on copy

ClaudeWalker asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
So I have a folder that has permissions where Everyone has Full Control.

However, whenever I run a program (video encoder) that places a newly encoded file from a Temp working folder to the aforementioned (everyone permssions) folder, the permissions are not inheriting.

Basically, when I try to see the video through my XBox it's not there until I go to the folders premissions and click "replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from the object" checkbox.  

Is there a way to get those permissions to apply to that file just by residing in that folder?
