Robocopy copies data, but not the sharing informations
Posted on 2007-07-26
I will soon need to move a file server server to a new one and will have to move data, permissions, file shares etc.
I can use RoboCopy for that, but it seems that robocpy doesn't copy the file shares.
Some subdirectories are shared and after using RoboCopy to copy the file shares, the directories are not shared on the destination directory while they are on the source directory.
I use this command-line
RoboCopy.exe "D:\Backup" "\\testsrv\d$\testshare" "*" /R:0 /W:0 /S /E /ZB /COPYALL /FFT /TEE /V /FP /ETA
I have seen the scopy tool which can apparently copy files shares but seems less reliable than RoboCopy for the copying task.
Doesn't anybody know a software doing the both tasks in one tool, or method to make RoboCopy share the directories on the destination server as well ?
Thanks in advance,
