I have been using Robocopy for years and recently upgraded to the latest one from the 2k3 res kit.  Anyway, I noticed a very strange problem.  When I use the following command:

source destination     /copyall /s /v /r:1 /w:1 /eta /mir /log:log.log

It will copy all the NTFS permissions for all the folders in the tree but none of the files.  Is my command line incorrect?
