When you move files/folders, the share breaks. You can reshare them out. I don't think robocopy will move share permissions.

Moving a file/folder to another partition will break the original share, it will also have the effect of inheriting the permission of the target partition/folder.

robocopy will transfer the permissions when the /copyall switch is used, you can also get robocopy to create a log with the /log:filename switch.

for a complete list of syntax type robocopy /?

Thanks All,

I used From Command Line. And its Working.
Here the syntax of command line........
in cmd type xcopy C:\somefolder E:\backupfolder /D /E /C /R /H /I /K /Y

This command will copy all files, including those in sub-folders, that are newer in the source folder. It will copy hidden as well as read-only files and will create the destination folder and/or sub-folders if they do not already exist.
