Just wondering if there is an easy (without having to buy a 3rd party tool) way to migrate users redirected folders from Server 2003 to Server 2008 R2.

Users launch Xenapp 5 Published desktops. Users currently have Server 2003 style profiles with folder redirection in place for my documents etc (as XenApp 6.5 hosts are Server 2003).

Our new XenApp 6.5 farm is Server 2008 R2 based (and so is the profile/redirected folders host). Currently I am using a robocopy script to copy the users files and folders (1 user at a time).

However since the folder structure is different between 2003 & 2008 R2, I have to manually move my pictures etc after the copy is complete.

Is there an easier way? We have a few hundred users to get through.
