it might be caused by some existing sub-folders or files under the given folder were given various previously-assigned permissions which may be different than those you applied to the specific folder (just the specific folder itself, not any sub-folders under the specific folder.

therefore, you need to apply the permissions to all existing sub-folders and files under them given folder, click the Advanced button and check the checkbox to "apply these permissions to objects and/or containers within this container only".
