    How can I copy permissions

    Locked

    by blackcurrant ·

    Hi

    Can someone tell me how I can copy permissions from one folder to another.

    I need to set up personal folder access for about 45 staff where each staff member has full control over their own folder and write access only to all other staff folders.

    Do I have to import users accounts for each folder separately, then set the permissions on them, or can I copy these permissions, then paste them and save myself a couple of hours work?

      How to Copy a Folder to Another Folder and Retain its Permissions

      Click Start, and then click Run.
      In the Open box, type cmd, and then click OK.
      Type 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.

      Example
      Type xcopy c:\olddocs c:\newdocs /O /X /E /H /K, and then press ENTER, where olddocs is the source folder and newdocs is the destination folder.

      For more information about Xcopy switches, type xcopy /? at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

        Hi dRb63, thanks for answering. Although your answer is correct, it only applies when creating new folders (my fault for not giving enough information).

        These folders have already been created and contain email, therefore they are constantly being accessed, otherwise I would use the XCOPY command and copy the folder contents across.

        I would like to know how to copy permissions between existing folders.
