NTFS permission


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

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.

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.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

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?

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?
