hi guys

I've got a file server which I have set up and I want to transfer the files over from the old to the new using robocopy (seems like the fastest option I have at the moment right now!).

So I wanted to do the following:

1. Copy files from old to new server along with security permissions (if possible?).

2. Once the files have been copied over, for a mirroring to occur so that I can run a command and copy over any changes made on the old server and have them transferred to the new?

Would you be able to help me with the switches I'd need to use on both occasions?

Thanks a lot
