(Windows) Copy Directories and retain all timestamp and security information

I found a need to move a directory on a file server which served our Domain Users homefolder share. File ¬†permissions were required to stay exactly the same, so using Windows Explorer was out of the question, since that modifies folder attributes… so i decided to use robocopy:

robocopy /MIR /DCOPY:T /COPY:DATSOU <source> <destination>

yep, that did the trick, i think.

Note: this may require elevated privileges.
