In the "Inherited from" column of the advanced security dialog, some NTFS
folders list the value as "Parent Object".  What does this mean?  Does it
mean the immediate parent or the top level parent?  Why is "Parent Object"
shown for some entries while the full path is shown for others?  Can you
change the "Inherited from" to inherit from another parent in the hierarchy?

Thanks.
