NTFS Security problem using robocopy over mapped drives.

Hello experts!

I'm trying to use robocopy to copy a large amount of data over the network.
I would like to keep the privileges on all the folders.

The command looks like this: robocopy F:\tmp Z:\tmp /COPYALL /E /Z
When I run the command on local disks everything works fine.
The problem occurs when I choose a network drive as the destination even though I
have full rights on the destination folder.

I'm remoting in to a Windows 2003 server from an XP machine.
Any tips?

Best regards

Do you have Full Control to the destination both in NTFS permissions (on the Security tab) and share permissions (on the Sharing tab)?  Can you manually create files and folders in the destination directory and change permissions on them?

Also, try using console mode RDP, since otherwise you are using your own login credentials , rather than the servers.

I hope this helps !

Hi guys.
I have full permissions on both the server and the client.
All the operations can be done manually.

I tried console mode on RDP, this did not seem to help.
This is realy bugging me out.

Any kind of tips would be great!

Unfortunatly nothing worked so I gave up Robocopy and wrote my own tool. =)
If you want something done you have to do it your self.
Thanks guys.
