Force inheritance after it's been disabled

When you disable permission inheritance, all child folders have to be managed separately. However, if you change your mind, there are two ways you can re-enable permission inheritance.

The first way is to reverse the steps you originally took to disable the inheritance:

1. Right-click on the child folder that has inheritance disabled and select Properties.

2. Go to the Security tab and click the Advanced button.

3. Place a check next to the option that specifies Inherit From Parent The Permission Entries That Apply To Child Objects. Include These With Entries Explicitly Defined Here.

4. Click OK to close all of the dialog boxes.

This is a very easy method, but it fails when you have several folders for which you want to turn on the inheritance. In this case, perform the following steps:

1. Right-click on a parent folder and select Properties.

2. Go to the Security tab and click the Advanced button.

3. Place a check next the to the option that specifies Replace Permission Entries On All Child Objects With Entries Shown Here That Apply To Child Object.

4. Click OK to close all of the dialog boxes.
