Sharing Data Between Two Domains on the Same Network

I have two SBS 2003 servers on the same network. They have separate domains. I want to copy about 80 GBs of data from one to the other over the network. Right now I can't see one from the other. So I can't copy the data from one to ther other.

Is the best way to go about doing this creating a trust between the two domains? Will this affect anything else unforseen such as the separate Exchange systems each one is running?

Copying data like this will save me a day of driving to the location and copying data to and external drive and walking it over to the other network. Would it be better to do it that way, or is creating a trust a simple way to do it?

Or is there an even better way?

SBS is a standalone server, so you cannot establish trust between two SBS servers/domains.

If you are talking about one-time job, or something you want only for administrative purposes, you have many other options available, for example:
- Remote Desktop from Server1 to Server2, while having enabled DRIVE MAPPING in remote desktop client. that way, you will see drives of Server2 on remote desktop session in explorer on Server1, and you can copy over whatever you want
- TeamViewer "server" on one server, and connect to it from another server as a "client" will also make you able to copy over any amount of data

Hope this is what you are looking for.

Thanks, that's what I was trying originally but over the internet 80GBs will take a long time. Maybe if I use the network ip addresses with RDP it will be faster.

I connected locally with RDP. Do you think there will be a timeout problem? I imagine the copy will take hours. If so, is there a way around it?

I did the remote desktop method over the LAN and it's working great. Thanks.
