  • File Server Migration - Copying NTFS Permissions post copy to Destination?

    I'm currently working on a file server migration and did an initial "test" file migration. Wrapping back around and looking at the other options, I did not have the Copy NTFS file permissions (requires admin rights) checked off.

    Is there a way to copy over NTFS permissions post migration? Rather than copying the files again?

    Hello,

    Not with Beyond Compare 4. The Folder Compare's Session Setting, Handling tab option to copy NTFS Permissions only works on files during the file copy, and BC4 does not support setting the permissions manually or copy only permissions.

    We have a KB article on the subject of copying NTFS security descriptors, here:

    And an article for generating reports, here:
