Sub Folder permissions

Sub Folder permissions

ChrisMyers
New member | Level 2

We migrated a ISO 9001 folder structure from our servers. My question is one of folder permissions. We need everyone to have access to the parent folder and most of the sub folders under that parent folder. Is there any way to remove members from a sub folder that has sensitive information in it such as pay rates and personal information? It appears that dropbox carries the parent folders permissions to all sub folders below it. Is there any way around this? Thank you.

The only way around it is to move that subfolder to a brand new top level directory and individually share it out.
