I want to migrate/move my current IIS server to a  new Server and I'm hope to do this without have to setup each site manually.  Is there a way to just move or migrate my folders, settings etc?

You can give a try on some other non productivity servers may be in testing servers, don't try it on a production server, just a suggestion.

One question in the case of my FTP sites, the FTP is located  c:\inetpub\ftproot but my sites are virtual and they are located on another server.  Do I need to point that tool to the other server that the FTP folder sits on?  All my sites are on a share on a  different server.  It connects but when I hit gather its telling me not found?  OK I'm now thinking is there a way to just copy the structure?

Why spend so long doing email signature updates?

Do you spend loads of your time carrying out email signature updates? Not very interesting are they? Don’t let signature updates get you down. Let Exclaimer Cloud - Signatures for Office 365 make managing email signatures a breeze.

FTP Logins on 1:Default FTP Site - 13
Site: Default Web Site
***Sites:1

I found the msdeploy moved my website most efffiently.  I did try to use the other migration tool which did work but it only moved 3 of my FTP sites and I had to wind up doing that manually.  My suggestion is MSdeploy for websites
