Hi There,

I am facing problem with moving data. This data has all the restricted files and folders.
Its was backed up on a tape drive and restored to another location from where it was supposed to be picked up and organized in diff locations.

1)Copy has problems of long file names.
2)Move is giving problem with access denied.

Please help.

Yes if its on a different drive.  It will inherit from the target root folder.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

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

As long as you are moving the files from one NTFS drive to another the security and permissions will propagate to the new drive and or share.

Dear Vinchenzo & TroyHrehirchuk,

Apologies for the delay.

Thank you both for the clarificaiton on my 2nd question. Its really helpful information.

Vinchenzo: Robocopy tip is a very good option you provided, for copying the data, for my main question.

What I really need is a mechanism with which I can move the data in win server 2008, w/o any problem, w/o effecting the security  & heirarchical structure of he data.

Can you go back to your tape drive archive and try pushing to the specific directory that its originally target was intended for? Perhaps a migration from tape drives to a hard drive based backup archive array far less expensive than tapes and much quicker...
