Hello there, would like to copy the user directory from one server to another and keep everything intact, especially the NTFS permissions.  Also, best to create the parent directory first or will entering the destination automatically created the parent/root direct into which all the other subdirectories fit?  Thanks.

robocopy /s /mir /E /SEC

should help to copy and ensure permissions are mirrored.

Does Richcopy (not robocopy) not have that ability?

Richcopy has been known to have it's issues with NTFS permissions, what I would do is use richcopy for the initial copy then robocopy incremental with the flags to set ntfs permissions to match the source.

It is doing one thing twice but it achieves what you need.
