Data move

I have Windows 2003 server and will be installing a new hard drive because I am running out of space. I need to move shared folder  to the new drive and retain the share and the permissions on all of the files and folders. Can someone give me some direction on this? Thanks for your help.

You can use XCOPY or ROBOCOPY and copy the file from one disk to the other preserving permissions.  

As for the shares, you can export the LanManServer Registry key before moving them and then move them.  After the move, use disk management to swap the drive letters so the files are still on the same drive letter, then import the registry key and reboot.

Thanks, I had had much better luck with robocpoy than I have with xcopy.
