TAKEOWN command and inheritable permissions

I've recently taken over a project and have a question regarding the Takeown command...

The issue started with incorrectly configured redirected folders so I corrected the NTFS persmissions on the root and told them to apply to all child objects. This worked for 95% of the user folders within. I then noticed that there was an old user account listed as the owner of the non-working folders so I used the Takeown command to replace ownership. However, I did not know that the Takeown command would wipe out all non-admin accounts that were inherited as well as take ownership. The issue now is that none of the folders within the root will inherit NTFS permissions for any non-admin accounts.

The question is: Is there a way to correct this or am I stuck having to manually enter user groups (ie. Domain Users) to each folder?

I'll try to help but I don't quite understand what permissions each folder has. Can you help me recreate the permissions?

Given a folder structure like this....

 C:\>tree c:\test
 Folder PATH listing
 Volume serial number is 0000002E D4D5:40E3
 C:\TEST
 └───Folder1
     └───Folder2
         └───Folder3
    
 C:\>

On C:\Test I set Administrtors:Full and Users:Read. All subfolders inherit those permissions.

In your case, which subfolder(s) has inheritance disabled?

Which subfolder(s) does the Administrators group not have access to?
