Where is SCOPY in Windows 2000?

A. Scopy was a useful NT 4.0 resource kit utility that enabled files/folders to be copied with their ACL's and audit settings kept intact. SCOPY is not supplied in the Windows 2000 Resource Kit but its functionality has instead been packaged into the XCOPY utility.

/X copies the audit settings (as /a in SCOPY)
/O copies ACL information (same as SCOPY)
/S copies subdirectories (same as SCOPY)
