    Backup Flags

    I am about to undertake a task to convert all out Domain Local groups to Universal groups, so that they can then be migrate to another domain.

    Before the migration I will need to rename the groups. As these are security groups used for folder access, the new name will appear under the folder security permissions.

    My question is....will this change the flags on each file\folder? as I don't really want to factor full backups into my work if avoidable.

    To the best of my knowledge, the files and folders should remain unchanged as it will just resolve the security ID to the new name.

    If you only backup daily changes, then I'd be very surprised if the group renaming causes files to be backed up.
