RoboCopy and Server Shares

   Windows Server 2003 "farm"

Desired Task:
   "Move" corporate shared space from existing server to new "data" server.

So Far:
   I tested RoboCopy and it copied the data and all the security attributes, Active Directory rights and permissions to all the folders, subfolders, and files.  i.e. the COO's information is only available to the COO and me; nurses ONLY are allowed in the patient's folders; the HR folder is accessible by ONLY HR and higher management; etc.
   The only thing missimg are the shares being established on the destination server.
   It doesn't appear that the command syntax includes such a feature and that the shares will need to be set up on the new server.  Not a big deal ... not that many shares ... a dozen or so ... would be a neat switch to add to the arsenal ... I'm sure that some of the other bizaar switches have a perfectly valid use for somebody on the planet ... this would be for those of us migrating/consolidating information from one structure to another or older equipment to newer ... after all, it is about me and my needs <big grin> ...
