Hi,

I need to copy data from a trusted domain to my local domain and I need to save the original permissions from the source.

I've tried some options from internet (robocopy) without success.

Thanks in advanced.

this i basically what u need to do:
icacls <source-folder> /save AclFile /T
- Will save the ACLs for all files under c:\windows
 and its subdirectories to AclFile.

icacls <target-folder> /restore AclFile
- Will restore the Acls for every file within
 AclFile that exists in c:\windows and its subdirectories.
