Windows 7: Can't apply share attributes to files in folder

Can't apply share attributes to files in folder

Hey,
I'm attempting to share a folder called "Media". I'm sharing with my user account "MC", with account "Administrator", and with "Everyone" as well. The problem is that these permissions are not applying to the files/folders within. Most files (and every new file added) has to be manually shared, by default it will only share with MC/Admin. I've disabled sharing on the entire main folder, then re-enabled it, but to no avail.

How can I get it so ALL files in the folder are shared with the permissions of the main folder?

EDIT: It's only happening with video files. No video file will share itself due to being present in a sub-folder. The only way to share any of them is to manually share it one-by-one.

Read through the tutorial below, it shows you how to check the box to inherit permissions from the parent folder.
