We have a Linux server with SMB shares that we now need to move to our new Windows 2012 servers. From the Windows 2012 side, I have tried Richcopy which is much like Robocopy and it keeps freezing on me. There are some deep paths on the Linux shares ( perheps over 255) characters. What would be the best way to copy these files and migrate the files to Windows. We are welling to pay for a software so long as not to expensive and it works. The issue with Richcopy is that I do not get a reson as to why its hangs on me. It was fine for two directories, but is hanging on the third one. I have a feeling it may have to do with bad charterers in the file names or the dept of the files . Not sure if 2012 R2 comes with any file migration options built in.
