ILOPES is on a distinguished road

Good day all...
I have a MacBook Pro networked with iMac both running OSx. On the iMac there are two users, one user I have full access (even though the folders aren't even listed under Shared folders) second user I had to list the folder in Shared Folders however I don't have any access to the subfolders. In all the subfolders they are listed to have full permission. Does anyone know what is going on?????
Thank-you in advance!

You can try repairing permissions.
To repair permissions:
  1. Open Disk Utility, located at /Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility
  2. Select your startup disk on the left of the Disk Utility window
  3. Select First Aid from the tabs
  4. Click the "Repair Disk Permissions" button

Your message isnt too clear about what which folder you are talking about. If you want to change the permissions of a folder and all sub folders, you have to choose the option "Apply to enclosed items" in the info window... Im not sure this is what your talking about though.
