Incremental Data Copy from Current to New Server

Current: Server 2003
New: Server 2008 R2

Have used YCopy to copy data from source (current) to target (new). Question, is there an application that will copy (incrementally) the data that has changed (ie updated/new) from the initial YCopy?

Thanks

Are you asking for incremental in terms of once a day or what is the time frame for incremental that you are asking?

Robocopy and RichCopy will do these procedures for you.

Here are a few more as well I have used a couple of them

Thanks for reply Bossco.

I mean, for example, 1 week or so after the inital yCopy (500mb+) i want to be able to run something that will only copy to the new server the files/folders changed during that period on the current server (time saving exercise more that anything). Someone suggested TeraCopy but i dont think it does what I want.

Thanks
Have you checked out the robocopy command.  There are tons of switches you can use, here is one that would probably work pretty good.

/xo    Excludes older files.
Something like this:

robocopy <\\server01\data> <\\server02\data> * /copyall /xo /eta
