Is there a program that will show missing folders and files?

I just moved folders from one server to another. The folder contains thousands of folders and files. I am looking for a program that will check the folder I copied from one server and the folder I copied the files to on the other server. I need to find file names that didn't copy. I copied these files and folders from a 2003 server to a 2012 server.

You can use tera copy software to copy or move the folders. This will give you details information of file which copy will not be sucsess.

Does TeraCopy work with Windows Server 2012? Is it free?

Actually, I found out that it is free for non-commercial use. I don't need a solution to copying, since I already copied most of the files. I just need to figure out how to compare the folder I copied from and the folder I copied to, so that I can see the few files and folders that were not copied. Plus, it needs to run on Windows Server 2012.

Microsoft's own Robocopy software works beautifully for this kind of thing - it's included with Windows Server 2012.

robocopy /MIR \\oldserver\oldshare \\newserver\newshare

Where the /MIR switch means "Mirror one folder to the other".  It'll compare source to destination and make whatever changes are needed on the destination to make it match the source.  So only changes are copied.

Do you audit things like that? If not, then you're out of luck. You could try looking at the owner of the files, but that's unlikely to help - most likely it'll either still be the original owner, or it'll have inherited the owner of its new parent folder.

I hope you need any programs for this...

Thanks.
