Move files by Ownership

By vyun ·
I am running NT 4 Server SP6a. Is there a way to quickly move files and folders by ownership rights to an alternate location on the same machine? Thanks in advance.

You can use the resource kit's Robocopy utility for individual copy and move operations or for ongoing directory replication. Robocopy supports the preservation of NTFS permissions, auditing, and ownership information during copy and move operations(i.e., if you run it with the /sec switch). The utility also offers several other useful features, such as the abilities to mirror entire directory structures, seed directory structures on a target drive without copying files, exclude files that meet certain criteria, and restart aborted copy operations at the point of failure. You can use the At command (or Task Scheduler, depending on your NT service pack level) to schedule Robocopy to perform particular file-copy or directory-mirroring tasksat various time intervals during the day. Because Robocopy provides superior flexibility and efficiency, you might even consider using Robocopy in lieu of NT's built-in directory-replication service for intraserver replication of the Netlogon folder's contents.
