Move files from SBS2003 file server to a NAS

I'm in the process of testing moving our files (shared/network files/etc) from an SBS2003 server to a Netgear NAS (ReadyNAS Pro 2). I've tested moving the files with RichCopy 4.0 and had success besides the domain level permissions. I have added the netgear nas to the domain via the netgear's set up. Is there something I'm missing? Or do I have to manually fix permissions on the netgear? Thanks.

You shouldn't need to fix the permissions. However, if they're messed up you can run robocopy with the /SECFIX switch and it will set the permission from the source to the destination.

Ok, thanks. Is there a better option than richcopy?

Richcopy is a good option. But I'm partial to robocopy.
