Copying NTFS Permissions with RichCopy

 Microsoft's RichCopy is a fantastic tool for copying/moving files.  It's multithreaded so moves things along quicker and has a nice log so you can see what's working and what's going wrong. It's kind of like a GUI on top of RoboCopy and you can get it here... However, I always forget that it doesn't copy file/folder NTFS permissions by default.  This is what you need to do if you want permissions to copy across to the destination: - Click the "View" menu and then click on "Advanced". - Then click the "Option" button on the right below the "Source" and "Destination" buttons. - Click on "File attributes, Error Handling" - Tick the relevant boxes under the "Security information" section. Hope this helps.
