Title says most of it, I created a folder and a bunch of subfolders then gave people direct access to each of them.

It's basically a template that I want to copy/paste and modify the name.

"Copy To" doesn't maintain direct access permissions, how do I effectively copy/paste a retain them properly?


Copy to will not keep permissions. If you want to set a unique permission on quite a bunch of places, I think it may be better to use a CSOM/PNP powershell script to handle it. Here are some samples you can refer to. SharePoint Online: Set Folder Permissions using PowerShell

Or simply you can put all the actions in one script: How to Copy a Folder in SharePoint Online using PowerShell?
