What is a good free utility to copy data from a windows server to another windows server?

I am familiar with robocopy but was wondering if there is a good free gui utility out there for copying data from one windows server disk to another and also it keep the security rights in tact?

There are GUI add-ons for robocopy, like the one below:

Personally I use FreeCommander, which is a 2 paned Windows Explorer type of utility, when copying files and doing other tasks on files or directories:

Does free commander  keep the rights in tact when copying?

I think it inherits the rights of the destination folder, but it probably also depends on how the settings of that folder are (inheritable or not).

I use SyncBack Pro. This is not free but is very inexpensive. It is all GUI, fast, and preserves files properly. Once done, subsequent runs are incremental and synchronize. I use this all the time and it is many times worth the small price.

Richcopy is also a good option

It allows most of the same options of robocopy.
