    Issues setting permissions

    I have set a user to have full control on a top level folder which I have
    created. If I select security on the folder and then advanced the setting
    APPLY to is set to "This folder, subfolders and files"

    However only the files contained in the folder have the permissions applied.
    Other folders in the top level folder and deeper files have not had the
    security settings applied.

    Where is the option in vista to allow you to select "replace permission of
    all child objects" to force the settings down the tree?

    You didn't check the "Apply these permissions to objects and/or containers
    in this folder only" box, did you?

    > all child objects" to force the settings down the tree?


    It is in the Advanced dialog.

    1. Right-click the folder
    2. Select the security tab
    3. Click Advanced. Elevate if necessary
    4. Click Edit...
    5. Check the "Replace all existing inheritable permissions on all
    descendants with inheritable permissions from this object" check-box
    6. Click Yes
    7. Click OK twice

    If you are still having a problem after doing all that, can you please send
    us icacls output on that folder?
