ITsVISTA KB-Link: KB2644882

The permissions of a subdirectory are not copied correctly by the “Robocopy /Mir /SEC” command in Windows Vista or in Windows Server 2008

Consider the following scenario:

  • You set a permission on a parent directory on a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008.
  • You configure a subdirectory to inherit permissions from the parent directory.
  • You copy the subdirectory to a target directory by using the Robocopy command together with the /Mir /SEC switch.

In this scenario, the subdirectory unexpectedly inherits permissions from the target directory. You expect the subdirectory to still inherit permissions from the parent directory.

There is a download that resolves this issue. See Hotfixes for details.
