I'm evaluating Bvckup 2 pro and have hit an issue. We have a large set of data which needs copied from one share to another whilst preserving the ownerships and permissions (this can be achieved using robocopy albeit slowly). However when I run the copy it seems to change the ownership from the original owner to the account which is running the Bvckup 2 program.
I have tired setting the flags within the options (copy ownership etc) but it makes no difference. any suggestions?

If you have respective options selected under "Also copy" in the Backup Settings > More Options section, then the sec. info _will_ be copied.
You can check if your choice was in effect during a backup run in the log -
2020.12.02 13:17:02 Running the backup...
2020.12.02 13:17:02 Preparing...
2020.12.02 13:17:02 Deducing changes...
2020.12.02 13:17:02 Preparing backup plan...
2020.12.02 13:17:02 Planner setup
2020.12.02 13:17:02 Security info: compare and update
Similarly, if you first run the job with these options unselected, then select them and re-run the job, the program won't re-copy the files, but it will clone the meta. In the log it will appear as such -
2020.12.02 13:14:31 Running the backup...
2020.12.02 13:14:31 Processing...
2020.12.02 13:14:31 1. Updating file test\foo\bar.txt
2020.12.02 13:14:31 Updating: last-modified timestamp, owner, group, DACL
In a pinch, you can always run a ProcMon trace of Bvckup 2 and see if it issues IRP_MJ_SET_SECURITY requests for the files it copies.
