ACL corrupted how to fix it

I have deeb folder structure. There is inheritance enabled in all folders but there is also added some extra permissions for some spesifig folders. This folder structure's ACL has somehow corrupted and when I make some change to parent folder permissions these changes dont affect to all child items. If I check some of these problem folder I can verify that inheritance is checked.

Is there some way that I could fix this ACL. It's of course possible to set all manually but it would be a huge job to do and im trying to find a way to do this somehow automatically...

thanks in advance

You may try to use icacls...

If an ACL has become corrupted or destroyed, icacls.exe has a way to reset it to inherit from its parent...
