I am upgrading hard disk om my Windows 2000 server. This disk contains home directories of all the users. All the directories have complex sharing and security permissions already set. How can I move all the directries to the new disk with all the security and shaing permissions intact?

You can also use the backup program that comes with the OS. It has a pretty comprehensive help file to guide you and it is reasonably easy to use.

If this is going to take place on a different machine or the hardware is going to be different other then the hard drive then you might want to take a look at these links.

STOP 0x0000007B" Error After Moving Windows 2000 System Disk to Another System
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q271965
"After you move the system (boot) disk to a backup computer, you may receive the following message on your Windows computer when you try to start the backup computer:

***STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF741B84C,0xC0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000)
INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE

CAUSE
The registry entries and drivers for the mass storage controller hardware in the backup computer are not installed in Windows.

For integrated device electronics (IDE) controllers, there are several different chip sets available, such as Intel, VIA, and Promise. Each chip set uses a different Plug-n-Play (PNP) ID to identify it.

The PNP-ID information of mass storage controllers for the backup computer must be in the registry prior to startup for Windows to initialize the correct drivers. "

Alternatively, if you put both hard drives (the old one and the new one) in the machine together you can use the old standby XCOPY with the /X parameter, which will copy all auditing and ACL (Access Control List) information over along with the files.
