COPYDIR and COPY do not modify the directory attributes - I presume what you're asking for is that when COPYDIR and COPY create a new directory they (optionally) should copy the attributes of the source directory?

IIRC, I tried that way back in the 4DOS days and had to abandon it because of compatibility complaints. I'll have to try it with CMD and see what it does.

Yes, exactly.

Ok, all right, thank you!
