What tools do you recommend for the below ?
 1. three old Win2003 file servers with LOTS stale data
 2. want to move only data that actually is needed to the NEW file servers
 3. need a program to show me what needs to be moved and then move it,
    along with the associated DOMAIN user security folder/file settings
 4. archive the remainder so user can access
    and move over to NEW file server if needed

Maybe something like the below ?
