      Description

      In Resources, when a subfolder is created, it has the permission set of the top level directory.  In most courses, all roles will have the permission to 'read' resources.  There are some cases where instructors would like to restrict certain roles from being able to access a subfolder.  When selecting that subfolder and going to edit folder permissions, the instructor is not able to remove permissions, only add.  This forces the instructor to update the top level directory permission set to fit their needs and then alter every single subfolder to include the 'read' permission with the exception of the one they wish to leave out for the role.
