Is it possible to write the permissions of a folder to file - then recreate
those permissions for a different folder using that file?

    What you'd like to do is not posible, b'cause permissions can only be
    inherited "from" parent folders and "to" child/subfolders and/or files...
    in other words, a file can only receive inherited permissions, it cannot
    inherit them. What you want to can easily be done if you make notes or
    take screen shots from the Security of a file and save those shots in .JPG
    or .GIF files, print them and apply those exact permission settings in a
    folder's Security.

    To have the security tab available:
    WXP Pro; Control Panel\Folder Options\View\uncheck; Use simple file sharing
    ( recommended)
    WXP Home Edition: the Security tab can only be available in Safe Mode:
    press F8 every second for three or four times in the first Logo screen and
    select Safe Mode from the logon options.

    Regards.
