Resetting NTFS /SID Permisions

By keyek ·
Has anyone ever run into the problem where the file permissions were causing problems? The data was stored on a member server not inside a doamin and then was moved to a server with in a domain. Is there a fix for this. Also the data was on an external storage device then just moved over on the existing device.

Resetting NTFS /SID Permisions

It's a rule, documents moved from one partition to another, been in the same machine or to another machine, all rights are deleted. In this case you'll have to reaply all the permissions.
Now, a workaround it is to use the backup system. If you have the files backed up, restore to the new location and all the permission will be maintained.

Good Luck!

You actually need to add the machine to the domain, then restore (from backup or perhaps Ghost image) the data. This must be done AFTER adding the machine to the domain. This is what I've done in the past and it's worked for me. Be careful with Ghost however, it may bring in an image that actually "detaches" you from the domain again. It's better to selectively restore from backup.
