Secure Copy Software

I purchased the Secure Copy from Dell (I know, I know but it seemed like a viable solution) to move my file and printer server 2003 to file and print server 2008 (both servers are virtual). After install everything appears fine after running a test copy.  But when I run the actual copy,  everything comes back as "access denied."    Does anyone have a solution?????

i Recommend to join your server back to domain and start copy via Robocopy

robocopy \\source_Server_name\source_Folder \\dest_Server\dest_Folder  /MIR /SEC /dcopy:t /A+:A /R:2 /W:5 /TEE /Z /NP /LOG:logfile.txt

Another thing I have done in the past if they are both virtual and the files sit on a non-system partition is to just mount the second drive from the old 2003 server as an additional drive on the 2008 server.  You then just need to recreate the shares.

both are viable solutions but not what I used.  the "$" was missing from the target path and that stopped Secure Copy from running successfully.  Once I inserted the missing character everything worked as advertised.
