there are 3 things to know when copying/moving
files on a ntfs partions/volume
1. copy will create a new file and permissions
to that file are inherited from the parent (root or folder )
2. moving files on the same partion only updates the the reference
to the objekt itself and the permissions are unchanged(internally)
3. moving files on a different partion will copy the file to the new
drive, (creating a new file)inheriting permissions set on the parent, and the old file are deleted.
You made a move to the other drive, that is...a new file is created inheriting the parent permissions.
You know, that's how I figured it works.
That some good information prog_dotnet, thanks.
The funny thing about this whole thread is that people are all assuming I have a problem with files moved over to the Vista drive when in fact I don't. I dont even have the Vista dirve plugged in at the moment.
