I have a member server running Server 2003 with WSS 3.  I've just replaced the client's SBS 2003 server with a SBS 2010 server.  The SBS2003 CompantWeb was never modified so I didn't bother looking into the sharepont migration part when I migrated the AD and Exchange.  Question is, can I open both sites in Windows Explorer and Drag and Drop?  I kind of hate creating it all from scratch.  I've created new sites on the 2010 server so all I need is the documents and links.

I hope I explained myself correctly.

Thanks in advance!

Regards,
Steven

I have copied many documents over.  The trick I did first was creating a new list/library/etc first.  Then drag and drop all the documents in there.  I have done this multiple times when converting or moving SharePoint sites.  

The only thing to double check is if there are custom column names, or if the master pages were not altered.  I would test it first.  In my case, the column names were standard.

Thanks!  I went ahead and did that already while waiting and it worked OK with most docs.  Some just won't open anymore but I got the ones that I needed and they work.

Thanks!
