You guys are really awesome! Ronnie Wong and Daniel Lowry have such good chemistry together! I used this Sybex A+ book and it is total garbage. Because of that, I subsequently failed the 802 exam. The good news is that I passed the 801. You're 801 videos were really helpful! Now I know when I retake the 802 to use your videos. The Sybex book barely goes over permissions and virtualization, which your 802 videos cover. I'll definitely take a look at all of your 802 videos before I retake the exam. Anyways, my question is when I move a file or folder to a different partition, does that file/folder inherit the destination folders permissions? I think it keeps the same permissions when I move it to the same partition. Also, when I copy a file to a different partition, does that file/folder inherit the new location's permissions? When I copy to the same partition, does that file/folder inherit the new folder's permissions? Thanks again!
Solved Moving & Copying Permissions on Different Partitions
The simple rule of thumb is this on file and folder permission when moving/copying permissions.
Within the SAME partition (D:\original folder location to D:\new folder location) the permissions are kept and any permissions on new locations are inherited as well. So if, you had a file in the original that was read only and you copied it to new folder in the same partition that had Read and Execute, you would essential have read and execute regardless of moving or copying.
If you're moving or copying to a different partition (D:\original location to E:\new location), the permissions will be changed and you will drop your permission from the original and inherit the permissions of the destination folder location.
I've been wrong before, so check me on this by trying it out! Other members may chime in and give some background to this or tell me why I am wrong. I'm working from memory and now, my memory and eyesight may go hand in hand.
