Recreate / copy special permission on shared folders RRS feed

  • Question

  • I encrypted (truecrypt) one of my drives with server shares and all looked fine.

    Problems arised when I wanted to move / rename shares on this drive. A look around on some forums tells my this is caused by the encryption, not solvable.

    I'd like to create te share on a proper drive and copy the files, this works.

    Except for e.g. the video's share which has special permssion. Does anyone know how I recreate or copy these permissions?

  • I encrypted the whole drive (E:) / partition. It is mounted preboot. The encryption was done after the shares where created on the drive.

    Just like the system drive, with two partitions. One (C:) for the OS, one for data (D:). the fly

    In the dashboard shares on D: are managable, the shares on E: can't be managed (system data e.g. remaining size on drive not shown).

    It might be size matters, drive E: is a 2TB drive, drive D: just 400GB.

    I solved this issue by xcopying all data to a new drive (w/h encryption). Then, on the fly, removed assignment of drive E: and reassign it to the new drive.

  • Hi,

    How did you encrypt the drive? If the shared folder was created on the encrypted drive, maybe we could not change the permission of the folder.
