Windows Thread, Inheritable permissions in Technical; I'm not sure whether something is perhaps wrong with my setup, or its just the way things are meant to ...

I'm not sure whether something is perhaps wrong with my setup, or its just the way things are meant to be. When I put a file into someones folder, it doesnt inherit the permissions of the parent folder, therefore if I forget to manually set permissions on it, the user cant open it.
I'm sure in the past I've been able to put files in and have them get the correct permissions, which is how I thought it was supposed to work - am I wrong or is something set up wrong? Its not a huge problem, as it only occurs in the odd occasion such as file restores, but its annoying

IIRC the file permissions follow a file that is moved, but not one that is copied.
File restores from tape would be a setting in the restore job.

Aha. Makes sense, since I usually copy. When restoring I restore to a different location, then copy the file over with a different filename just in case they still need the original

Move to the same volume - permissions are preserved
Move to a different volume - permissions are inherited
Copy to the same volume - permissions are inherited
Copy to a different volume - permissions are inherited
