I am trying to migrate the redirected my docs files from one sbs 2008 server to another sbs 2008 server.  Some of the folders will not let me copy the folder and contents to my migration medium (external hd), but most will.  I am on the source server as an administrator and have changed the permisions and ownership on the problem folders such tthat they should copy, but nope.  What do I need to do to copy these folders?

Is the user you use for this operation - local admin and owner of these folders?

Or use DFSR to replicate the data...

Late nights usually adle the brain.

In the heat of the battle we used our BDR system to complete the migration of our folders.  Worked slick.  

DFSR would not work in our situation as the two systems cannot communicate with each other.  But a great idea otherwise.
