Move file server shares to another 2003 server

Hi,

I need to move a major share from one Windows 2003 R2 server to another Windows 2003 R2 server. They are both DC's. The share has loads of permissions set - some not inherited etc.

I have read a few threads that using NTBackup to backup the share and then redirect to other Server opting to keep security tree (or whatever it is) may do it. I did do a test of a particular folder and that didn't work. It moved it but didn't keep the permissions.

I have BackupExec 10d in my armoury if necessary :o)

HAs anyone done this successfully and what are the best options you would consider?

Thanks for any help
