Robocopy NTFS Permissions

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Hi guys,

I need to copy a 250GB folder with NTFS permisions from one drive to another NTFS drive and then do just a sync to copy the differences. I want to do this while users might access some files from that folder.

I run
C:\>robocopy "F:\Marketing Archive" "D:\Marketing Archive" /E /COPYALL /r:0 /w:0

But it copied everything ... but no NTFS permisions.... why ? Maybe because I created on D the folder manually ?

Also what`s the command to copy only the differences after  I  copy all of those files ?

Thanks a lot
