"ERROR 1314 (0x00000522) Copying NTFS Security to Destination Directory" - Cannot copy empty folders with NTFS permitions...

Last Modified: 2013-12-04
I am trying to use robocopy for copying a folder structure with defined security permissions and preserve the ntfs permissions...

My script is: (see bellow in code snippet)

When I run it from my user (Domain Admins) run OK, but if I run it through a user which has full permissions in "source" and in "target" but does not belongs to Domain Admins I get the error:
ERROR 1314 (0x00000522) Copying NTFS Security to Destination Directory \\sbmain.local\sbdfs\DPT_Technical\Templates\PROJECT_Template\
A required privilege is not held by the client.

Please advice

robocopy.exe \\Source\PRJTemplate \\Target\NewPrj /LOG+:\\Source\_log.log /E /COPYALL /NP /R:2 /W:2
