What do you mean by ntfs security, are you talking about the security info as well?

/secfix I think might do it

actually it might just be /sec. I am confirming this with the list of switches here http://www.mydigitallife.info/2007/05/07/robocopy-syntax-command-line-switches-and-examples/

You just add the file name(s) as argument after the source and target folder:
robocopy "S:\ource\FOLDER" "T:\arget\FOLDER" "TheFileName.ext" /copyall

I already tried /sec and /copy...both work fine but there was something that maked me confused.

Exemple: robocopy "S:\ource\FOLDER" "T:\arget\FOLDER" "TheFileName.ext" /copyall

or robocopy "S:\ource\FOLDER" "T:\arget\FOLDER" "TheFileName.ext" /sec


With robocopy XP010 even if folder in target does not exist it will create it and copy file with security NTFS. This is not the case with XP027, with XP027 version like in Win 2008 if folder specified in target is missing the file will be copied but not the permisssion.

Thanks for your helps.
