it seems that rsync doesn't fully support windows acl for the moment
when you try to rsync a source with any acl on files a crazy brain can 
you just can't have more than an inherited scheme acl on the destination
for this mechanism, we have to use xcopy (which work at file level, not 
at block)

thank you all, bye
