    Robocopy and attributes problem


    Using Robocopy, I should copy the files of a directories structure with all their ACL and their attributes except the attributes of reading in another structure. How should I do this?

    /copy defines the attributes you want to include (defaults to data, attributes and timestamps). /copyall includes everything including ACL.
    If you want to then make them read only add /a+R to set the Read-Only attribute.
    something like

    robocopy C:\users\user1\Documents E:\Backups\Documents /mir /e /copyall /a+R

    Is that want you want to achieve?
