I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Who is in the permission list? Does the group really contain all required users?
I hope you do not mess with DENY rule.
Is the inheritance blocked or not?

Under Advanced you can choose if you want to apply it to the folder only, to the folder and subfolders, to the folder, subfolder and files... Check this too.

And be sure to tick (under Advanced) the option Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object
