Trying to migrate a SBS2003 Server to a new 2008R2 server. Running into a problem with the Data partition on the SBS. The data takes forever to move, its an older server with ultra320 scsi drives and the motherboard has no sata or any other common connections. The amount of data that needs to be moved is about 450GB. The data is shares, userprofiles, home directories. Lots of individual files, over 700,000 to be exact. Ive tried an ntbackup which failed after 30 hours Ive tried using a ubunti live cd and copying over a gigibit switch which failed as well 20+ hours into it. The only thing else I can think of is to get a Sata card internally with a big sata drive and backup internally. If anyone can help with this issues that would be great. If theres any magic device to get a ton data out of old equipment that would be even better.
