Folders that have identical permissions as the parent folder would show up with "Same as parent" in User Name and/or Security fields in the report. However, if you do not want folders with identical permissions as the parent folder reported, then select Do not display folders that have same permissions as the parent folder option. This option will not report folders with identical permissions as the parent folder.

Note: The "Do not display folders that have same permissions as the parent folder" option would be enabled by default.
