Roaming profile migration

Last Modified: 2021-04-12

I need to migrate a lot of roaming user profile folders from an old server shared to a new server.  

I login to the old server as a domain admin but I do not have permission to the folders unless I take the ownership.  

What is the best way to copy the folders to the new server?

Please advise.
