Moving Shared folders

Hi,

I am new to this file migration stuff. Some one referred me the "Robocopy tool" to copy folders from one location to another. While playing around with it, I found that it doesnt copy the Shared information.

Is there any tool that does that? or is there a simple way of finding a shared folder - seeing who all have access to it and then restoring it?

don't know of any tools, but you can always click on the folders propeties and take note of the users and their rights

Are you using the latest XP version of robocopy?  You get the following options:

  /COPY:copyflag[s] :: what to COPY (default is /COPY:DAT).
                       (copyflags : D=Data, A=Attributes, T=Timestamps).
                       (S=Security=NTFS ACLs, O=Owner info, U=aUditing info).

               /SEC :: copy files with SECurity (equivalent to /COPY:DATS).
           /COPYALL :: COPY ALL file info (equivalent to /COPY:DATSOU).

Download rmtshare.exe from the resource kit. This can be used to list all the shares on one server and transfer them to another server (as long as the folder names are the same on both servers.)

@ nls73m : Considering the number of folders in question, this is not an option...anyways I am expected to automate this as far as possible

@ stevewea : I am using the same switches, but i am not getting the shared information.

@ David Fong : This might do the trick...i ll check it and get back to you.

Thanks everyone for the help so far...
