We currently use FSRM on a Windows server 2012R2 enviroment to archive old data to another local disk.
after archiving the data to this other disk, all user rights are set to default.
Is there a way to maintain userrights set on the archived data?

How you archive data? are you using any tool?

During archival if data get copied from source and paste on destination and post that original data get removed from source, you will not get original permissions retained on copied data

You need to ensure that data get moved from source disk to destination, this will move data along with permissions as well

OR else you can use windows backup tool / 3rd party tool to backup data from source to destination disk along with permissions

Hi,

thanks for you reply. we are using FSRM (File Server Resource Manager in Windows)  for archiving. as far as I can see, it has no settings for maintaining ntfs rights.

FSRM does not support copying ntfs user rights. we found thad other tools suchs as robocopy or powershell do.
