How to migrate data and folders from SBS 2011 Standard to windows server 2012 R2 Essentials

TechIsaac asked
Last Modified: 2015-08-21

I am migrating from sbs 2011 to windows server 2012 R2 Essentials .

I installed 2012 , setup domain controller (AD, DNS and DHCP) and added users
with same permissions as sbs 2011.

This is my first 2012 install.

How do I migrate the data/folders to the new 2012 server.  I am suffering
from information overload.

Both servers are still on the network but I have not done any client connections yet.

The sbs 2011 server is still in use (8 users).  I have created a unique server name for the
new server.

Can someone assist me.

Thanks in advance,
