Folder Permissons on Desktop Sync/Mapped Drive

I tried to search for a solution and cannot find it. We currently have every computer drive mapped, and also desktop synced (for offline use). All of the folders are setup with user permissions that are non-inherited that are pre-established from a template folder we copy from. When we setup a new project within the mapped drive none of the permissions are carried over. The only way we can keep folder permissions is by moving them within the website domain. Is there any way to move folders and keep permissions when moving within the mapped drive?

Hi @TeamOne 

Please make sure [Folder Inheritance] is enabled for the template folder. Also check to see that the [Keep source folder permissions] is selected when making a copy of the template folder. Please refer to the helpdesk articles below for more information:

Re: Folder Permissons on Desktop Sync/Mapped Drive

currently i have non-inheritence applied to the folders since i only want employees to access certian files within the parent folder. I review both articles and it doesnt give much detail on moving files on the mapped egnyte folder on my computer. I also have "keep source folder persmissions" enabled. When i copy the template folder in my mapped drive it removes all user permissions and reverts to admin access only.
