Microsoft ADMT 2.0

For transfering data files from an old Windows 2000 server to a new 2003 server, is ADMT the easiest way to keep the same share and structure?  Is it easy to use?

Try using a utility called robocopy.exe (Robust File Copy Utility), part of the Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit

You can download from Microsoft:

Basically you can use it to copy [mirror] your data to a different location and keep folder structure and security permissions as well [using different combinations and switches, to achieve what you want. Easy to use, and very very efficient when copying data over the network]

So all, you would have to do is re-create the top-level share, and the deed is done.
