I have data that was copied to a different NTFS location with the source NTFS permission, how can I get the source permission and change them to read instead of modify access for all users or groups that have modify access

Regards

If you want to mirror source permissions and destination permissions, try using robocopy's copy permission only option as advised.

thank you for your reply I already copied the data from the source to destination using robocopy / copyall and I need on the destination to change any user or group that has modify access to read only.

So you only need to modify the permissions from modify to read only for the same groups/users which are already listed under Security Tab?

Then why don't you simply change permissions at the root/base folder and modify it there from Modify to Read only and make sure Inheritance option is checked? So all permissions get copied to child objects as well.

Cause I already have users and groups added to a folder/subfolder with modify access.

I think what he wants is... To change just the users and groups, without affecting those that were there before the copy. Is that correct?
