Remove corrupted inheritance

Background / Value

Broken ACLs (Access Control Lists) interfere with NTFS inheritances on file servers. As a consequence the sub-directory will not receive the correct inheritance, despite this feature being activated. 8MAN displays "Broken ACLs" and removes them by reapplying the inheritance.
