Windows 7: Adding files to network share not inheriting security

Adding files to network share not inheriting security

Hey guys,

I have a network share set up with everything working. My roommates can see, read, and download files from me, and my WDTV Live can play back music, videos, etc. These folders that are shared have Security settings with the user "Everyone" with Read & execute, List folder contents, and Read set to "Allow". The problem I'm having is when I add new files to a folder that is shared; it doesn't inherit this "Everyone" username permission to it's Security tab. Any thoughts?

Set all items to inherit security settings / parent permissions.

Have you double-checked the security tab (as-if you're going to add or search for users like "Everyone," for example, or "ASP.NET,") and made sure that the advanced options, such as "inherit parent permissions for object" are checked?

OceanicAirlines, thanks for your reply, because you had me look in the right area. The feature I was looking for is "Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object" which is located in Security > Advanced > Change Permissions. Now, whenever I add a new file or folder to a shared folder, it automatically adds the shared folders' permissions to it without me having to add it manually.
