copy a fs with the same privileges

Hi All,

I use "cp -R /fs/* /newfs" and I can copy everything except it won't have the files/directories the same privileges.

Is there a trick to this without using a software-backup.

Thanks in advance,

the command is like this "cp -R -p -h /fs/* /newfs"

forgot it already...
