hello guys,

i'm restoring home folders from a backup and i have noticed that "not inherited security" doesnt get restore when performing a restore of files/folders. Is there a way to force ntbackup to restore this type of security as well that is build in within the folders?

Amongst the restore options in NTBackup should be "restore file permissions". Also make sure the directory where you are restoring the files is not set to automatically write permissions to the child folders.

how do make sure the directory i'm restoring to doesnt automatically write permission to the child folders? i only see the option "allow inheritable permissions from the parent..." which is uncheck already.

There is also a check box to make it overwrite the child folders. So when you are looking at permissions, make sure that doesn't get checked.
Plus I know you already said, but double check the folder restored isn't set to inherit permissions.
