Create compressed file which keeps the NTFS security

Ever tried to compress some files/folders and keep the NTFS security ? I did some tests and research, and until now I only found 1 program which allows you to do this: WinRAR.

You can set the option Save file security in the Advanced tab when you create a RAR file. I tested the feature, and it works perfectly: handy when you want to copy a lot of small files (for example: user profiles) over the network and keep the NTFS permissions: just RAR the files/folders first with this option, copy the RAR file over the network (copying 1 bigger file will be much quicker than copying a lot of small files), and decompress it.
