    Need to carry out bulk home folder move to another drive

    I have tried to search this in the forums as i belive it may have been asked before.
    I was unable to find it so (sorry)
    I have 200mb left on my admin server, so i need to move the user folder that contains all the user home folders to another partition. I need to keep the share name and permissions so i would be greatful if someone would help out or point me to a thread that covers this

    greatful as always!!!!!

    Assuming 2000/2003 server

    Permcopy from the Resource kit can copy share permissions
    Robocopy can copy the files and permissions - careful are the default retry count is 1m!
