Hi there,

By adding features to the command line, would it be possible to archive NTFS security and Audit settings as well.

"C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7z.exe" -p1234 a -r -mx=9 "Z:\Documents.zip" "C:\Documents\*.*"

If not please advise.

Thanks,
Rene

As far as I know 7zip does not support this, while Info-Zip and tar claim to do so.
As it is now, I guess your unzipped files will have the permissions of the 'unzipper' account.

If you need this however, I guess you could make the unzip script change permissions on the unzipped files afterwards, but I do not have enough experience with NTFS security/audit settings to advise you further on this topic.

Good luck.

Well, thinking about it, the unziped file will inherit NTFS security and Auditing attributes of the folder receiving it.

Also, it will bet better that 7z does not keep NTFS security and Auditing attributes, because, what if they are changed along the way and I retreive a zipped file eith OLD attributes.... NOT GOOD...

Thanks BasiKobrA for contributing.

Cheers,
Rene
