I need to copy 500 GB of data from one server to another.  I'm looking for the best way to do this other thanks "copy and paste".  Sometimes using "copy and paste" gets hung up when it tries to copy a file whose name is too long to copy.  Is there a utility I can use that will copy all files without stopping in the middle?
Thanks,
cja

Robocopy is a good solution.

You can use Fastcopy (graphical) to do the same task. It's more easy :)

Depending on the Operating system, long file names won't copy because it's not supported. You will need to rename long folder and file names to avoid this issue.
