I am looking for a program Free or Paid that can transfer hundreds if not thousands of files and directory while removing or ignoring the security of the file.

Reason is if there is a file with incorrect or old security, when file coping it will stop the transfer then you have to skip the file and search for that file. Then after finding it you need to change the security, this can be very time consuming. I was hoping there is a program out there that doesnt pay attention to it and just copy the files and directories.

Hopefully someone can help.

Robocopy.  http://www.mydigitallife.info/robocopy-syntax-command-line-switches-and-examples/

The COPY:DAT with only copy the data and the files will inherit the security of the destination.

Absolutely.. robocopy is great and i second that.

The GUI is easy to use too, if you don't want the command line.

At our shops, we also use any version of Linux to avoid windows security issues while copying or moving and it seems smoother.  You can boot a live environment if you don't want to install Linux.

Robocopy, or even xcopy with the /c switch, will continue their operations if they run into an error accessing a file - they'll just skip it.  If you don't have access to the file due to permissions, your best bet in the /b switch in robocopy.  If a file was locked however, even that may not be enough and then your best option would probably be something that supports VSS.  Not too many utilities support that that I know of.  If I remember right Hobocopy is one that does.
