Moving Network Shares to a new drive while retaining permissions
Posted on 2006-11-23
I have added a new RAID array and controller to our SBS 2003 server and want to move the data folders from the existing single drive without having to completely reset the permissions. I have already moved the Exchange files without any problems.
The clients have mapped drives to the network shares.
Is there an easy way to do this, xcopy perhaps? If so what would be syntax to move an entire folder with subfolders and all files with security and permissions intact?
Would it work to take my latest backup and restore the folders in question to the new array?
Thank you for your help.
