Moving User Shared Folders on SBS 2003
A couple of weeks ago I was installing backup and anti-virus software on the company sbs server and thought while I have the network to myself I would try to move the User Shared Folders as I am running out of space on that partition.
I have been searching the net and the forums here and I have read there are 2 ways to accomplish this, one is using xcopy and the other robocopy to retain permissions and ownership.
I tried to use the Microsoft TechNet way using xcopy but this didn’t work:
I have searched the experts exchange knowledge base but here are no definitive instructions for the switches needed for using robocopy.
I was wondering if someone could please tell me what syntax I would use for using robocopy to move the User Shared Folders to another drive (including switches)?
Currently the User Shared Folders are located on D:\drive and I would like to move them to E:\drive
Also I was wondering where the best place to put robocopy, should it be placed I the system32 folder or the root of C:\drive ?
