I've already got the permissions mapped out but they are on the wrong folder.
I basically need to move all the permissions up one level before I start restricting things on the sub-folders and reports.

I was hoping there was an easy way to do this but it seems not.
To the best of my knowledge, you will need to revert the changes/reset the changes on the folder that is incorrect. If you mapped everything out properly in the beginning you should be able to simply choose "Revert to Parent Security". I believe this has to be done manually from the web service (I don't believe it is possible in the database itself).

To clarify from one of my prior posts: Set the most basic security from the most top-level folder (to inherit down to all sub-folders), then start overriding the security on each sub-folder below it.

It sucks I know, but there it is

Unfortunately I didn't set it up, I'm just having to tidy it up
Looks like I'll have to do this the long way round then.

Thanks for the input.
