Migrating Shares and folders on same Win 2016 server
Need to migrate hundreds of shares and folders from one drive to another.
8/22/2022 - Mon
Was not sure how to move the shares from the G drive to the H Drive. I have do it before between servers when the drive letter is the same, but not when I was changing drive letters. There are hundreds of user folders (not profiles) and shares that need to be moved.
