I have NAS device, which uses the XFS disk format. I can use Robocopy to transfer my data on my XP machine onto this NAS. But the robocopy command will fail if I use "/SEC" switch, which I want to use to carry the NTFS security and permissions over onto the NAS. Is there a workaround? thanks in advance.

XFS doen't support the same security features like NTFS.
If you need to backup your files, WinRAR  for example can copy NTFS Permissions and restore them.
