Identify corrupted inheritance

Background / Value

Broken ACLs (Access Control Lists) interfere with the NTFS inheritance on the fileserver. The consequences: The subdirectory does not get the correctly inherited permissions, even though the inheritance is enabled.

8MAN shows you broken ACLs in a report.
