robocopy for file server migration
Posted on 2014-01-10
I've got an antiquated windows 2003 R2 file server and have configured a new 2008 R2 VM to serve as the new file server. Been using Robo Copy to migrate shares to the new server. It's an efficient tool.
The only problem I'm running into are some problem directories in shares yielding an 'access is denied' in robocopy. The odd thing is I'm using a domain admin account and the same account not only has full control over the directory, subdirectories, and files but is also the owner of all these objects.
This is only happening for a very small sample size of the data being migrated.
Just curious if anyone has run into this before. I'm a little stumped as to why an owner of a file or folder would have difficulty copying. Permissions on the destination drive are full control as well for the user.
