Both XCOPY and ROBOCOPY can retain NTFS permissons when copying files as can some 3rd party tools such as http://www.unosoft.co.uk/software/smallwonders/seccopy.html

what about sharing?

KCTSCommented:
Share permissions are held in the registry and it can be tricky to copy these - but should you reaaly need to?

Its normal to use Everyone - Full Control at the share and then use the NTFS permsssions to limit access, if you create the share with "everyone - full control" and then copy the files with XCOPY or ROBOCOPY then no more should be required.

Why ?

If the NTFS permissions are set properly then share permissions are an irrelavence.
