Dear Experts, I want to ask about Folder Permissions in Windows Server 2012.

Is there any way that i can copy all the permissions/rights assign to folders ? Suppose when i will change the location of a folder (Copy/Move to a different location) I want the same user rights to be assigned back instead of doing this activity manually.
Thanks

Also can i create a Backup of Folder Rights (User rights / Folder Permissions)

using x copy you can achive this

xcopy sourcedestination /O /X /E /H /K and then press ENTER, where source is the source path for the files to be copied, and destination is the destination path for the files.
