I have a folder which contains many sub folders and files, the permissions were a bit messed up thus i checked the box "Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object" but seems that when applying permissions to certain folders i get "Access is Denied".

Is there any way i can reset the all the permissions the sub folders and files ?

Thanks,

I just figured it out the reason behind this is that certain sub folders do not inherit from the parent. Is there a easy way to check all the subfolders so that they inherit from the parent.
