Dear Experts,

Sunnycoder just answered my previous, very similar, question.  However, I need a simpler method.  

At remote customer sites (on W2K Pro and XP), I need to automatically copy folders and have their security settings copied along with them.  Sunnycoder recommended ROBOCOPY, but a) I'm a dummy, and wouldn't dare use it at customer sites and b) I would need to get ROBOCOPY to the customer sites.  My backup plan (which is feasible, if a bit awkward), is to do it by hand.  But if there was an easy, safe way, that would be a lot better.

Any more ideas?
