I am currently planning an Exchange 2003 to 2010 transition, the problem I have is that when I run the pre-deployment analyser I get 2 critical issues stating that "access control list" and "permissions" inheritance is blocked for the public folder tree object, the tick box is ticked to "allow inheritable permissions from the parent to propagate to this object" on the PF database but is unticked in the folder hierarchies, just want to be certain that if I check this box that it's not going to wipe out the permissions on every child folder underneath? just that the PF DB is over 300gb (I know...) and don't fancy having to restore it.
Cheers

No it will not overwrite the permissions. It will only propagate the permissions at the parent level to the folder and any explicit or direct permissions at the folder level will remain.
