I have Windows 2000 server that has a 60gb file share that needs to be moved to a new larger partition on the same server. I'm looking for opinions on what the best tool would be to copy this data to the new partition while keeping the file permissions intact. If XCOPY is the answer can you provide me with the syntax including appropriate switches to do this copy (including the switch to keep going if it encounters a file it cannot copy etc...)?
Will the modifiec/accessed date change of all the files/folders change if using XCOPY? I've briefly looked into Scriptlogic's SecureCopy but don't think it's worth the $1000 for this one time data move.
