As I have documented this problem for myself I am attaching the description as a word document which has screenshots.

I am copying underlying data files for sqlserver from development to production and I am getting the security errors in the document.

There is a fix for the problem as noted in the Word doc but as I have to refresh the data often I really do not want to have to run the fix every time I copy underlying files (from DATA directory) over.
Note.  I always copy the .mdf as well as the .ldf.

"In the future refreshing underlying table and log file shouldn’t create such hassle!"

you need to understand and remember that a SQL login is tied to the SQL Server Instance AND saved inside your database as well but as you copy the DB from one server to another obviously the login from server A is not identical with the login from server B even if they have the same name so that's why you need to rebind the login from copied database to the login from the DEV server.

You should be able to workaround this by using sp_dropuser/sp_adduser in the database you moved to bind it to the SQL server login
