I assume you want to use the Advanced,  Change permissions, "Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object." Did you try that?

Yes already did and i just get access denied to sub folders already checked effective permissions and i already took ownership of the files so at this point im confused

Sometimes you need to use the bottom up approach.  Go to the folders that are not inheriting and turn on inheritance.

FWIW, also consider using the command-line version. The /R switch recurses the subfolders: TAKEOWN /F parentdir /R /A

You could take a look at Microsoft's powershell script to set the "allow inheritable..."

To perform this action you need to Take Ownership of the files and folders beneath. Take Ownership from the partent folder and propegate Owner permissions to child folders and files.

@Will that would take a lot of time because there is 100 of files is there a bulk way to do this?

All you need to do is do it from the Parent folder and make sure that you propogate changes to ALL sub folders.

I ran into this when we had undergone a re-org awhile back.  To take ownership of an entire tree structure is difficult at best.  Thanks to an individual named Sam McGeown for posting a Power Shell script it was a little easier.

You can do this from the command line using the TakeOwn command.

Open Command Prompt
Go to the Root Folder
C:\> takeown /f * /r /d y

Open in new window


You can also get a list of addtional parameters using takeown /?
