RE: Delete File - Bypass NTFS?

Good morning Gerry,

I know that the backup mode can somehow help in this task. For example,

/b Copies files in Backup mode.

If we run the tool on a source folder that Admin/System accounts cannot
access like this:

robocopy c:\[A Folder we cannot Access] d:\temp /b /move

The folder and its sub contents will be moved to d:\temp, and the original
one is deleted. After the move, the files will get the default DACL.

I'm performing further researches on it, and will report back as soon as

Have a very nice day!
