When you reset permissions on a parent folder, you force the subfolders to mirror the parent folder's permissions. This simplifies the permissions status of these folders, making them more predictable.
Resetting folder permissions from a parent folder differs from manually changing the inheritance values of subfolders. In a subfolder, you have the option either to mirror the parent folder's permissions or to keep permissions for any new users and Groups you have added while also mirroring the permissions for all Groups in the parent folder.
To reset folder permissions from a parent folder
In the administration interface, connect to EFT and click the VFS tab.
In the left pane, right-click the parent folder you want to configure, and then click Reset Subfolders.
