As a Domain Admin I have created a Share on a Windows 2008 R2 server and given a particular user Modify permission to the share.  He has recently moved data from another system under this Share and when he does the Ownership changes to Unknown and I have to override it to reinstate the Administrator.  How does this happen when the top-level down is supposed to continue to inherit permissions?

Also, is there a way to have anything he moves under the share automatically inherit the permissions from the parent without having to force it?
