Hi there
Recently due to a hard drive failure on one of my domain controllers, I need to shift all my backed up shared folders to another server.  Assigning shared permissions as well as NTFS permissions was a nighmare.  I am running at the moment server 2008 x32 and there is no option from where I can backup shared folders with permissions and put it back to the original position.  
What and how can I do so that I gather all shared folders with their exisitng permissions and move all of them to the new place and they still have their original permissions and shares?
Which program should I use?
Help plz

Try with robocopy

you need to only share root folder because it won't be share after "migration"

Krzysztof

Richcopy will work as well and is the updated version of Robocopy

Both tools will move data with existing permissions
