Moving files with permissions

I need to move files from one server to another and keep the file\folder permissions.  How can I do this without using backup and restore?

Thanks
Mark

You would need to use something like SCOPY (from NT resource kit).  However, since you're on Windows 2000 - this feature is now built into XCOPY.

From that link:

>>>
A. Scopy was a useful NT 4.0 resource kit utility that enabled files/folders to be copied with their ACL's and audit settings kept intact. SCOPY is not supplied in the Windows 2000 Resource Kit but its functionality has instead been packaged into the XCOPY utility.

/X copies the audit settings (as /a in SCOPY)
/O copies ACL information (same as SCOPY)
/S copies subdirectories (same as SCOPY)

ROBOCOPY is also useful for what you're trying to accomplish:
