Files copied before reboot are probably there.
I like to use a program like Beyond Compare fro Scootersoftware, or RoboCopy to copy large amounts of files.  Just getting into 2012, so do not know if it supports Beyond compare but if it does, you can do a Folder Compare and it will tell you if file or Folder is missing and which is newer.

dougp23--Where are the files?  I hope they are still on the server.  If not on Win 7 then you will have to start over.

If you were using Copy, then you need to check on the Windows 7 machine what is there already. Some will have copied so you can check that.  Then just copy the balance over. Copy works but is just a regular brute force command, so it will not know where to start again. You will have do to that manually.

If you want to do it all again, I think you can suppress the "File already there, copy again?" message.
