I have 2 folders, \\directory\FolderA and \\directory\FolderB

The permissions at the FolderA and FolderB levels differ, in that FolderB has less restrictive ACL than FolderA. I need to copy all sub folders from FolderB into FolderA, but ensure they inherit the permissions set at \\directory\FolderA not those of FolderB or any non inherited sub folders.

For example \\directory\FolderB\subFolderA has permissions that are less restrictive of those set at \\directory\FolderA . When I move all sub folders from FOlderB I need them to inherit the permissions set at \\directory\FolderA. “Folder A” and “Folder B” are on the same volume.

Please advise.
