I have a 2003 server and would like to copy data, over 800G to a new 2012 server. Question, my experience with Robocopy is it works better local drive to local drive, with this understanding can I use it to copy data from server to server?

Question #2 are these the correct commands to copy data with permissions?

 Robocopy "D:\data1" "E:\data1" /E /SEC
/e: Copies subdirectories includes any empty directories.
/sec: Copies files with security.
