copy file

How can i copy file from many user and keep same setting for owner and permission
2 Solutions
Just use cp with the -p flag.
for more detail read the man page of cp "man cp" you will find option you can use for cp, so that you can make use of other option

eg you can copy the whole folder/directory by using the -R so that cp -Rp will copy the folder/directory and it's content and preserve the attributes of each file and directory as owensleftfoot suggested.
