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.
