Transfer files to a different server

I'm transfering a load of files from one server to another new one.  I used Vertias to restore a backup of the files to the new server so we have preserved the permissions.

Do I manually have to recreate all of the shares or can I automate it in some way ?

    If you have the old server available AND if the drive letters are the same - you can export the LanmanServer Registry key and reimport that into the new server.  If you have different drive letters, change them so they are the same, or manually create the shares then.
