Problem

I needed the permissions on folder B to be exactly what they were on folder A.

Solution

Powershell’s Get-Acl and Set-Acl commands can be conveniently piped together.

So to copy permissions from C:\Folder1 to C:\Folder2, the following one-liner would do the trick:

Get-Acl -Path C:\Folder1 | Set-Acl -Path C:\Folder2

Happy scripting!
