We currently use Robocopy to archive files from our live file server to an archive server for files/folders that are older than a year old. For some reason the /SEC parameter hasn't always been a success, in particular on the folder permissions. Is there a way I can use Robocopy to compare folder permissions of the live server and mirror them to the archived version without actually copying folders?

Kind Regards
