Summary0003391: Move: Inherit Access Rights not inheriting correctly
DescriptionWhen performing a Move (F6) with access rights set to "Inherit", the access rights get copied (well, not exactly, see below) rather than inherited.
Steps To ReproduceSource files:
"." -> Everyone:RX (inherited from the parent directory, propagates to all sub-objects)
".\A.TXT" -> Everyone:RX (inherited from .)
".\B" -> Everyone:RX (inherited from .)
".\B\B.TXT" -> Everyone:RX (inherited from .\B)

Destination directory:
"T:\DEST" -> Everyone:F (explicit, propagates to all sub-objects)

Move ".\A.TXT" to "T:\DEST":
- Expected result: "T:\DEST\A.TXT" -> Everyone:F (inherited from T:\DEST)
- Actual result: "T:\DEST\A.TXT" -> Everyone:RX (inherited from ??? - surprisingly, there really is the "inherit" flag on the file!!)

Move ".\B" to "T:\DEST":
- Expected result: "T:\DEST\B\B.TXT" -> Everyone:F (inherited from T:\DEST\B, which itself inherits from T:\DEST)
- Actual result: "T:\DEST\B" -> Everyone:RX (inherited from ???)
- Actual result: "T:\DEST\B\B.TXT" -> Everyone:RX (inherited presumably from T:\DEST\B, but it could be inherited from ??? too)
Additional InformationCopy (F5) seems to work correctly with access rights set to "Inherit".

I suspect that in both cases, the setting is actually ignored and "Default" is used for access rights. At least, that's what the observed behavior indicates.

The bug is present since at least build 4797, possibly longer.
TagsNo tags attached.

Interestingly enough, it seems to have started to work with a new instance of the FAR's process. So it would seem the error isn't simply "Inherit doesn't work", but instead "Something can make Inherit to be skipped during Copy/Move".

I presume you moved files to another volume in the first case, but not in the second?

It's known "feature" and default OS behaviour, see

No. All the data were located on the T: drive.
