You need to take ownership of the file. If you actually have admin right your will be able to do this. Once you have ownership you can change the permissions.

If you go into the root folder and put a checkmark in Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object it will replace the permissions for all sub folders.

I'm glad you got it sorted though. Have a great day.
