Standup a Netapp CIFS share, create the top level folder then use robocopy with the /copyall switch to copy all data over and migrate all permissions on the Netapp.  We typically do this during the day with /MIR switch then at cutover do one more time and change all login scripts to new destination if you are using login scripts.
