Is this possible?

Have you tried drag & drop???????????

Answer #2    Answered By: Christina Lewis     Answered On: Sep 25

Yes, i tried drag and drop, but once the folder is in sharepoint, it
inherits the parent's folder permissions, even though I unchecked "reset all
subfolders to use these securtiy settings".

Typically you would leave the files on the original file-system when you
wish to reserve the access permissions.
If you have the resources available to redo your work, move the files into

There's no way to preserve the access permissions... different security
