You Can Replicate / Synchronize File and Folder Security Attributes

ViceVersa PRO always had the option to copy file and folder security attributes (permissions, ownership and optionally auditing) when a file or folder is copied between NTFS file systems.

Starting with ViceVersa PRO version 3, security attributes can now be replicated also for existing files, that is files that are already both in Source and Target and do not need to be copied again, and for files where only security attributes have changed since last replication/synchronization. 

This new option is called ĎRecheck file / folder security during comparisoní.

When this new option is enabled, ViceVersa will re-check and re-align the selected security attributes for all files and folders in Source and Target.

This means that the selected security attributes will be re-checked during comparison and will be re-adjusted during profile execution, and not only for files and folders that are copied but also for files and folders that are already both in Source and Target and for which only security attributes have changed.

Furthermore, VVEngine is able to detect changes in only security attributes, when working in real-time, and will replicate them if they change (without copying the file again, if the file hasnít changed, only the security attributes).

Note that when only security attributes have changed for a file, then the security attributes are always copied from Source to Target, never from Target to Source.
