There are command line tools out there but I'd go with rich copy  http://blog.joeware.net/2009/04/08/1632/

I haven't tested it on 2008 but it should work.

Thanks

Mike

Yes I have tested robocopy to do just this task. Then you can export the registry key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Shares" and as long as your drive letters match you can import the key onto new server. If drive letters dont match then it is a little trickier. :)

Run this on new server

"c:\windows\system32/robocopy.exe" "Z:\DATA" "d:\DATA" /e /copy:dsatou /b /mir /r:0 /w:0

Z: - is your mapped drive from old server
