There is a free software utility from Microsoft called Xcacls which allows you to retrieve the NTFS permissions on files and folders, you can then manipulate this to create the new settings:

There is also another good utility called SUBINACL.EXE which does a similar thing but is good for transferring security between domains:

If you want to just copy the filesystem + NTFS permissions, have a look at robocopy (using /sec switch)

if you want to retrieve the settings for folder on c:\temp you would run the following:

xcacls.exe c:\temp

This will display all the security set to this folder. However, if security is set further down the folders e.g. if all permissions have been removed and reset from folderA down within c:\temp\folder1\folderA then it ill not display this information. In this case you have to manually check each file and folder to calculate the individual permissions. In most cases the permissions will have been set from the top down but if it is a comple data structure with restricted subfolders then permissions may have been set on the subfolders.

I dont believe so, you could do the following..

/LOG+:c:\results.txt /TEE
This will output the results to a c:\results.txt file as well as the console

You could then use "find" to scan that file for any failures
