Am migrating from a SBS2003 that is in bad shape (crashing, will not install updates, etc)

DO not want to use a migration tool and possiblly bring problems over.

Plan si to install the SBS2011 fresh and recrerate the 10 user accounts.  Use .PST files in Outlook to get the mail over.

To move the data would Robocopy work?  If not any sugestions?

ExMerge works well to create those PSTs along with the additional bits that Exchange holds.


We use a multi-threaded copy program by a company called www.scootersoftware.com: BeyondCompare. It can be scripted, but we find we are able to sit there and saturate the network between source and destination by starting multiple copies across root and sub-folders.
