We have our customer files located on our network drives. What I am looking to do is have a "Master" file that is blank and has all the subdirectories in it that will be needed for a new customer - we scan in all our cusomter files, etc.

I want to be able to copy the master and rename to the customer but the subdirectories I want to restrict so that they can not delete anything.

I have gone and put a deny restriction on the users but when I go to copy the master all the restriction I have put on are gone. Is there a way to put these restrictions on and when you copy the master folder they stay.

I guess the real question here is... How can I copy files and retain the NTFS security.  The Answer is ROBOBOPY or XCOPY can do this for you.

I want the individual employees here who work with the customer files to be able to copy the master and keep the files

Example would be that one of our customer service reps is in the network drive I:\Customer Files and takes the file Master, copies it and renames it to whoever the customer is and it keeps the secrity permissions of the subfolders
