Moving files

I am moving folders from a 2000 virtual box to a physical 2008 server on the same domain.
I need a free tool to do this. I want to keep the current security settings intact.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

As stated above, robocopy is in server 2008.

You can copy from or to a unc path, and can include ACLs. Great tool for migrating groups of  folders with different permissions.
robocopy.exe was also available from the windows resource kit for 2000 if you prefer to run it from Windows 2000.  Unfortunately, the Windows 2000 resource kit is no longer officially available, but you can download the XP or Windows 2003 resource kit and copy it to windows 2000. http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=17657

You could also install RichCopy, another free tool from Microsoft if you prefer to use a GUI and not deal with command line switch syntax. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/2009.04.utilityspotlight.aspx
