Best way to copy files with keeping the security (permission) settings?
Posted on 2011-09-08
I have a Windows Server 2008 R2 that has multiple drives. Currently there is drive D:\ that users within our company can see as S:\ share. For couple of reasons I need to copy all the folders on this D:\ drive to the newly created F:\ drive that new users are supposed to see as S:\ share.
What is the FASTEST, EASIEST and MOST SECURE way to perform this WITHOUT losing the current security and permission settings?
Both drives (old D:\ drive) and newly created (F:\ drive) are on the same server. So it's local copying. Maping the new drive to look as S:\ share is not a problem, will be done via GPO.
Thanks for the tips.
