How can we replace all the permissions in all child public folders so they match the parent folder.  Used to be able to do this Prior to Exchange 2010.  We are at Exchange 2010.  Cannot do it with ExFolders or Public folder management console.

Here you go..

EMC->Right click the Parent PF -> Manage Settings -> select Update clients permissions and also check "Apply client permission changes to this folder and all its subfolders" ->Next ->Next ->finish

Thanks. but this will only allow add/removal of permissions.  I want to overwrite all the child folder permissions with the parent permissions.  With existing method, a user who has rights to a child folder, but not the parent, will not be removed from the child folder.  We have thousands of folders.

Exchange actually provides a script to do this for you.
It is called RemoveUserFromPFRecursive.ps1 and is in the Scripts directory.

Use of the script is discussed in this TechNet article:
