Moving and Copying NTFS Protected Files
Moving and copying protected files is similar to moving and copying a compressed file. When you copy a protected file to a folder on the same, or a different volume, it inherits the permissions of the target directory.
However, when you move a protected file to a different location on the same volume, the file retains its access permission setting as though it is an explicit permission.
When data is moved within the same volume, the data is not actually relocated, the pointer to it is merely changed and that is why it retains the ACL (Access Control List).
