How to Transfer User Files to Another User on Server 2008

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I currently have folder redirection setup on my Windows Server 2008 box so all of the users Documents, Pictures, Videos, etc. are stored on the server and not the users personal PC.  I need to transfer all of the files for a specific user over to a newly created user account.  What is the best way to do this so that the new user has the proper permissions on the folders / files that I am moving to them?
