Currently we are using our domain controller as our file server as well ( I know, horrible practice...but it was set up before i worked here). Anyways, our DC is now running out of hard drive space and I want to move some of the files to another server that has literally nothing on it, but backup software. The DC server with the files is running Server 2003 and the backup server is running Windows XP. The problem that I am having is that I want to retain permissions to all the folders that I am moving. I am just unsure of the easiest and most efficient way to go about accomplishing this task. I have heard rumblings about robocopy and xcopy being the best, but I am not at all familiar with them, so I would need to know the Exact syntax, as I am not very good with command line utilities. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
