Copy sub-folders INCLUDING the permissions?

Jump to solution

Hello Egnyte Team,

 

One thing I like a lot on EGNYTE is, that everything is granular.

So I build up various sample folders with granular permissions for sub-folders, access rights etc. Certainly the parent folder or root folder does not have all these permissions and access rights what I created for the sample sub-folder.

When this sample sub-folder is copied to another folder and even within the same parrent folder, all earlier set permissions are lost.

How the folder owner (me) can copy this sample folder to a new folder without losing the all these permissions and access rights of this respective folder?

 

Other content provider (like box.com) they have a so called “template folder”, where any created folder (incl. permissions etc.) will become a template folder, which I like a lot.

 

Thanks for your valued feedback :-)

Werner

Hi Werner,

We actually released a feature this weekend — Advanced Folder Copy — that will help accomplish some of this. Advanced Folder Copy will considerably expedites the process of manually recreating a template folder structure.
Follow the link below for more details.

While you won't be able to copy the template folder's permissions with Advanced Folder Copy, you can still choose whether to inherit the destination folder's permissions or set up new permissions yourself. Hope this helps!

Regards,
Shyam
