This one is more of a quick note.
I had copied files from an old file server to a new one and thought the permissions moved over fine. For some reason, ownership and permissions didn’t match.
I needed a straightforward way to fix the permissions due to the volume of data I was dealing with. This did the trick for me:
robocopy <source> <destination> /secfix /copy:atsou /e /xx /xd Dfsrprivate
/secfix fixes file security info but needs details on what to correct
/copy:atsou says to grab all information except for Data (it would be DATSOU in that case.) My memory trick for the /copy: switch is if someone says Atsou.. you say bless you. You only pass information with them and don’t want their content 😉
/e is subdirectories, even empty ones
/xx will ignore new files or folders in case changes were made since
/xd Dfsrprivate (Folder to avoid. You can skip this if you don’t use DFS replication)
