File permissions

Is there a way to force XP Pro to change the permissions on files that are
moved into a folder as they are copied/moved?

I have a temp folder where I place photos to be sorted. Once I've selected
the ones I want I move them into a folder shared within the workgroup, but
the files keep the permissions of the original sorting photo. Short of
changing the permissions on my sort folder can I tell XP that all files in
the shared folder are to grant access to the others in the workgroup?

Thanks

Hi,

How file permissions are handled depends on:
- are you copying files from one location to another
- are you moving files from one location to another

and
- is this operation (copy or move) done on the same volume (partition) or
between two volumes.

Here is an article that explains this in depth and suggests some
configuration changes.

I hope it helps you out,
