Hi jdff,

It not very clear what you want to do.

Do you want to copy a same folder to multiple users computers keeping the same file permissions?

Post back.

I want to transfer shared folders from one computer to another one and when they hit the new computer I want them still shared. Got it?


Thanks

Well its not natively possible with SBS2003. I think I heard someone recommend a third party tool that would keep security permissions. But if you move to a different computer that will change any UNC drive mappings you had set up on your clients (unless of course they were assigned via a script and then you will be ok).

Robocopy keeps all the ACL's intact when copying folders and files..  It is in the Resource Kit, or you can dnload it here...:
