Copy files preseving NTFS permission.

Copy files from one hard disk to another on a server while preserving NTFS permission is not possible with the regular copy and paste.

To do so, you will need xcopy and the following parameter:

xcopy sourcedestination /O /X /E /H /K

Robocopy is another option, which I never really try.
