    Data migration


    I need to copy all users dats from E disk to K disk on our file server. What's the best way of doing this? I've looked at robocopy but I'm unsure of the switches I need to use.

    Basically e disk is a SATA disk on old San and k disk is a new sas San.

    Back up the e drive and restore to k. Probably the fastest way to retain all file permissions.

    I've done a similar thing last week, moving profiles from one drive to another to extend space on Drive C.

    I used Cobian Backup, to backup the profiles, and kept all permissions and times. Backed them up to another drive, change the drive letter of that drive and it worked, I haven't seen any downtime and nothing in the helpdesk regarding anything to do with profiles.

    Happy Days!!
