I have a 2000 server with a ton of user directories on it and would like to migrate the directories to the new 2003 server with the rights still in place.
Is this possible. Is using my backup software an option? I thing there's an option for this.

Regards,

Adrian

You can use most backup software (including the one included with 2000), you can use Robocopy, XCOPY, or SCOPY as well.  The latter 3 are command line tools.

My vote is for Robocopy - many admins use it to do just what you're trying to accomplish.

then use:

robocopy sourcefolder targetfolder file(s) /s /copyall

robocopy /? will show all the parameters available.

Robocopy is a great tool. I use every time I need to copy or move files from one location to another.

If you want to move instead of copy use the /move switch additionally.
