Trouble moving profiles to new server

I'm in the process of migrating from SBS 2003 to SBS2011. I'm atthe point where I'm trying to move user profile (for now we will still use them).

The problem is that while using robocopy im getting an "access is denied" on every .V2 profile directory.

I looked around on the net and found a GPO etting that lets admins have full control but it looks like it only effects future profiles.

Is there away of moving them short of taking ownership which will probally wack it out for the user.

Thanks.

Backup and restore. The backup process is allowed to access files that even the administrator is not. You can fire off a one-off backup process on just the roaming profiles folder and there is a version of NTBackup available on the Microsoft download site that runs on Server 2008 R2. It can only be used to restore files, but was designed and released exactly for this purpose...restoring data from an NTbackup file. Should get you going just fine.

thank, but i don't think thats it. it talks about using the windows transfer wizard on each account. I'm looking to do a bulk move.
