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.

Without specifying the command you actually ran, based on your description you did not use the /T option that tells icacls to apply the change on all sub items/folders.

I am sorry for the omission and yes I did use the /T option
