I have provisioned a new Server 2008 R2 server to host our users terminal service redirected folders.
The current host is Svr 2003 R2.

What is the best way to relocate the data, whist retaining permissions etc?

If there aren't any unknowns to this equation that you haven't told me, simple change the location in the GPO that is redirecting them.  It will continue to direct them to the old location until they pick up the new policy.

If you are asking where that is:  Start > Administrative Tools > Group Policy Management > GPO in question > User Configuration > Windows Settings > Folder Redirection nodes

To redirect any of these folders, right-click the folder name, click Properties, and then select one of the options from the Setting drop-down box.

Thanks for that. What about the data in the previous location? Will this move automatically by simply changing the path in GP? so does it need to be copied manually?

Robocopy it over manually (Robocopy instructions:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc733145(v=ws.10).aspx) then switch the location.
