  • Unable to copy NTFS permissions

    When doing data copies I usually run into "unable to copy NTFS permissions" and I stop the data copy. My question is does that error mean that it was unable to copy NTFS permissions for that one file or does that mean from that point forward no NTFS permissions are being copied?

    It doesn't differentiate. After the first error we continue trying to copy ACLs but suppress any further error messages about it. Outputting an error for every failed copy was too wordy.

      Wow. Thanks Craig for the quick reply. All this time (year or longer) I've been watching the data copies waiting for the error to pop up for the fear I was no copying NTFS permissions once the error was received. It's good to know I can just start it and leave it copying over the weekend.
