When copying / moving via explorer / winfile ACL's are reset to the default inherited ACL on the target filesystem. To preserve ACL's, one needs to use scopy / xcopy with /? (I don't recall the option to preserve ACL's offhand) / a third party product. It even manages to lose ACL's moving between partitions within a single machine - expecting it to get cross machine ACL's right via the GUI is *to much*.
