if you want to remove all ACEs that are inherited, use the /inheritance:r switch.

iCACLS should preserve the inheritance.. Are you getting any error while saving or restoring the ACL's?
Ref : http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/408.how-to-back-up-and-restore-ntfs-and-share-permissions.aspx

Also verify the permission on the folder and sub folders..

Excerpt from ref : http://ss64.com/nt/icacls.html
Using iCACLS

    To edit a file you must already have the "Change" ACL (or be the file's owner)
    To use the iCACLS command to change the permissions of a file requires "FULL Control" (or be the file's owner)
    File "Ownership" will always override all ACL's - you always have Full Control over files that you create.
