Copying Folder NTFS


I have to migrate a shared folder (30Go) from old server 2008 R2 to new serveur 2012 R2

Is there a way to copy the folder with all NTFS Rights ?
So that I do not have to care to assign enew NTFS right on the destination folder?

Thank you

First, try this on some sample folders:
ROBOCOPY \\server_2008\share\testfolder \\server_2012\share\testfolder /COPYALL /SECFIX /TIMFIX /DCOPY:T

Open in new window

If you're satisfied, blast the whole thing:
ROBOCOPY \\server_2008\share \\server_2012\share /COPYALL /SECFIX /TIMFIX /DCOPY:T

Open in new window

You can also use the File Server Migration Utility from Microsoft:

PLENTY of options:

File Server Migration Utility
Backup and Restore (Most people don't - BUT SHOULD - test their backups - here's a perfect opportunity)
Disk2VHD to convert the old drive to a VHD that you can simply attach your VM in Hyper-V.
Third party utilities

Lengthy documentation exists for most of the above with a simple google/bing search
