Yes!!  Files inherit destination directories' permissions when copied, while retain their original permissions when moved.

When you move a file on the same HD, it retain its permissions.

When you move a file from one HD to another, it inherit destination permissions.

I want to move a file from one HD to another and keep the permissions.

MS provides a tool called scopy in the NT 4 Ressource Kit CD.

This one copies permissions as well.

You can use the backup program in Windows NT to backup the files, and then you can restore them with the option "restore file permissions"
