The best way  to fix NTFS file permissions to inherit parent is to use Icacls utility

icacls "c:\RootDirectory\*" /q /c /t /reset

/q = Suppresses success messages.

/c = Continues the operation despite any file errors. Error messages will still be displayed.

/t = Performs the operation on all specified files in the current directory and its subdirectories.

/reset = Replaces ACLs with default inherited ACLs for all matching files.
