Our file server is unix based, but accessible from Windows. Whenever I move a file into a directory without also copying the NTFS permissions, the result is that the moved file loses all access rights. I get "access denied, contact administrator" for Word files, as an example. If I was able to enable this switch by default it would be great.
Thank you.

This is a known bug of some Unix servers: They report file system type "NTFS" via SMB, but actual NTFS functions fail to work. When you move a file in TC from a directory with certain user rights to a directory with other user rights, TC sets the rights of the file to the rights of that directory. The idea is that when you move a file from user "A" to user "B", the file should afterwards be accessible by user "B".

You can disable this behaviour as follows:
Please add the following string to the file wincmd.ini, section [Configuration]:
XPMoveMethod=0

You can edit the wincmd.ini via Configuration - Change settings files directly.
