Move share folder from one drive to another retaining share and security permissions

Print Friendly

We will use the robocopy command in order to copy the folder and retain all the security permissions

robocopy "D:\Data\FolderName" "G:\Data4\FolderName" /MIR /SEC /ZB /V /r:1 /w:2 /nfl /ndl

In order to move the share permissions we have to open the following registry key,locate the share and change the path:
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Shares
Restart the Server service and we are done.
