Copying permissions to subfolders and files

You can copy permissions from a parent folder to its subfolders and files. The permissions on the parent folder do not change; the subfolders and files inherit the permissions from the parent. Use the Copy Security basic task to copy permissions from multiple folders.

1
Open the NTFS Security module.
To copy permissions from multiple folders, open the Tasks tab, select a folder in the Navigation pane, and click Copy Security. The path appears in the Paths list. Click Add to select additional paths, and click OK.
