Symptoms

The permissions of the parent folder are added to a destination file even if the Allow inheritable permissions from parent to propagate to this object setting is disabled.

Cause

The ReplaceFile Win32 function does not apply Access Control Entries (ACEs) to the destination file from the source file correctly. Therefore, the Allow inheritable permissions from parent to propagate to this object setting is not copied and the default permissions are applied.
