A little bit about inheritance and NTFS

I learned CORRECTLY how file and folder inheritance propagation works in NTFS. I can’t believe I’ve gone this long without knowing how it works! I had believed that the utmost authority for inheritance was the parent, but now I know that is not true. Things start backwards with the child deny, then child allow, then parent deny, then parent allow, and so on.
