Windows 7: Permissions wont change to lower folders and files

13 Mar 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64bit
Permissions wont change to lower folders and files

Does anyone know why certain files won´t change the permission i put on the parent folders? It is quite strange,as it is only about 5% of the files on a given drive,when i change the parent permissions.

I am running a server with all my media stored as mkv and iso,and i remove ALL permissions from all drives except boot,and replace them with the permission Everyone,which should allow me to manipulate every aspect of the drive from any terminall on my home network,however this is not the case,some of the files have weird permissions which locks me out,and i have to manually change the permission of these files even though the parent drive and folders have the "Everyone" permission alone.

Anyone know why this happens?
