Hello Experts,

We are moving some of our Shared folders to a new server
Server 2003 --> Server 2008 R2

I was wondering what the best way to do this was. I really would like to keep the current user premissions on each folder.

There are about 35 users folders that will be copied over with special premissions to each folder.

Thank You and Good day!
-Matt

robocopy or xcopy with operators /X or /O. Eventually you can use SCopy.exe and PermCopy.exe from Windows NT Server 4.0 Resource Kit.

Good luck;)

Before doing a mass copy, test with just one folder and make sure it works properly.

I hope this helps !
