I was asked to build a new File & Print serve in Windows 2008 R2 64 bit server.  This is my first Win 2008 Server so excuse the dump question.  I am trying to set permission on folders in the shared directory.  When I right click the folder, Permission\Security tab\Advanced\Change Permissions… and uncheck Include inheritable permission from the object’s parent and the Windows Security popups with Add – Remove – Cancel.  What happened to the Copy button that was in Win 2003 R2?  If I click Add is this now the same as Copy?  If not what am I doing wrong.

Thanks,
Butch
