Hello,
I am migrating from a 2003 Server to a 2008 R2 Server
I have large directories (about 8Go of data) with complex NTFS rights
Is there an easy way to copy these directories from 2003 to 2008 R2 without loosing these NTFS rights?

Thank you

Use robocopy: it's part of the Server2003 resource kit that you can download. There's a command-line or GUI version.

Hey! that was my answer!

Just kidding. Agreeing with vanbarsoun there, robocopy is a good one. Though sometimes I prefer total commander

vanbarsoun is right...

robocopy {source} {destination} {files} /E /ZB /COPYALL /R:1 /W:1

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Richcopy is the new version of Robocopy which works very well.

Robocopy is also still a great tool and you can download the GUI version.

I used the Robocopy from a Server 2008 R2 to copy directory from a Server 2003 SP2 and it do not copy NFTS rignts

The command I use from Windows 2008 prompt is

robocopy \\server2003\share1 d:\dir1 /SEC /E /COPYALL

copy is done but without any NTFR rights
any idea ?
